ANALOG 8 by John--Ed. Campbell


Email this review


Roger on 8 but there's no superfine finesse in these nine very different tales from the magazine. Best are Robert Chilson's ""In His Image,"" a droll tale of humanity tricked into accepting the reality of three cute, capricious Androids; Dean McLaughlin's ""Hawk among the Sparrows"" in which an extraordinarily new fighter plane goes through a time warp and is forced to prove itself in WWI combat only to discover that its weapons are too advanced; and Joseph Wesley's ""Womb to Tomb,"" a Freudian look at future warfare where the combatants are absolutely loath to give up their front line positions. O.K. but not Out-standing.
