    "Great stories, great narrators"

    Of all the anthologies of classic science fiction stories available on Audible as of when I'm writing this review, this collection has the most consistently entertaining stories and the most listenable narrators. It's just great!

    "Some of the best"

    I tend to be wary of sequels because they often are not as good as the original. Happily that is not the case here. This is an outstanding collection of stories by some of the best sc-fi authors. Having many readers - all good - also helps. Five stars!

    "Dusty magazines"

    These are from the early days of SF magazines -- from the fifties I think. Some of the stories are not much more than a setup for a punch line. "But I Can," is the predictable last line of one that otherwise lacks drama or interesting characters.

    A point of my interest was in how the "future," the 1970s, 1990s, 2000, were envisioned a half-century ago. It gave me a sense of being in the past -- when the stories were written -- and experiencing what the aspirations and fears of that time were.

    The stories themselves weren't very compelling, kind of below average. The many readers are a mixed group, most of them just reading the words and sentences without any sense of character or story.

    I really would have liked to give more stars for these almost classics, if only out of affection for their pioneering and imaginative nature.

    "Terrible reading"

    I couldn't get past the first couple of stories. It just wasn't fun. Strange, because all the other books I downloaded were very well narrated. Too bad.

    I will soon be eighty one years young. I have had a very interesting life learning from it as well as enjoying it. I just published a book.

    "Terrible a waste of time"

    A five year old child could have written stories of more interest. Poorly written!
