    "Hunters in the Forest (unabridged)"

    Robert Silverberg's masterly short piece. Leading the reader / listener down what appears a predictable path, only to end with the totally unpredictable. A great imagination.

    "Not Silverberg at his best"

    The story was okay until I saw that it was in fact just a gag. Silverberg is better than trick fiction and this short does not do just to his skill at developing worlds and characters.
