KIRKUS REVIEW

14 stories from a now-defunct publication, Star Science Fiction, round up some good names -- ideas -- and imaginative situations. Kersh, Kornbluth, Bester, Bloch, Clarke, Kuttner, Gold, Leiber, Williamson and others make the most of monsters, surviving cultures, time travel, and possible futures. A doctor tries to cure a monster by giving a Jonah- like investigation of its insides; an accident and operation mixes a man's sensory responses; a superkitten realizes it cannot grow up to be a human; Clarke's The Deep Range is the short story that became the novel of the same title. Inventive.
