KIRKUS REVIEW

This is not a collection of science fiction stories.... What this collection is, is a collection of imaginative speculative writing reflecting...the problems and conflicts of civilized man today and his hopes and apprehensions for the future."" We couldn't agree more and in this 11th annual of a genre favorite Miss Merril introduces some outstanding new talents: Josephine Saxton puts a new twist on an old dilemma in The Wall, Alistair Bevan has a remarkable character in Susan, Thomas M. Disch horrifies in The Roaches and Donald Barthelme creates his own Fail Safe tension in Game. Of the old timers J. G. Ballard's The Drowned Giant is a classic.
