KIRKUS REVIEW

Nearly all of these sixteen stories are clever, and most are carried off with panache as well. Robert Thurston does an indescribable Doppelganger variation; twenty-year-old David Wise successfully constructs a picture of contemporary disintegration out of a few dozen Woody Allen-ish gags; Gregory Benford comes up with an unexpected and moving twist on the helpless-guinea-pig-of-alien-scientists situation. Michael Bishop hilariously de-effs some metaphysical ineffables in ""Rogue Tomato"" and provides the ultimate parody of sf anthologies in ""The Contributors to Plenum Four."" One of the most polished sf collections of the light year.
