KIRKUS REVIEW

For over a decade the magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction has been putting out special one-author issues, each with a story, a biographical sketch and a bibliography. Here are six such issues between hard covers. Sturgeon's tale is of the richest woman in the world, intent on saving her husband from an incurable disease; Bradbury's of an old man who remembers the sensuous past in a deprived future; Asimov's is a lunar mystery; Leiber's a horror story of a ship gone mad; Anderson's about a meeting of science and magic in the galactic outback; Blish does a variation on the sleeper waking -- as computer. Interesting chiefly for the biographical material; the Anderson, Asimov and Blish stories are often reprinted, and the Sturgeon, Bradbury and Leiber are minor.
