KIRKUS REVIEW

Ten inventive variations on the old problem of First Contact--these include Eric Rank Russell's touching Dear Devil where an unsightly but gentle poet arrives to help Earth's children after a nuclear holocaust; Randall Garrett's sprightly The Best Policy in which a man beats an alien lie-detecter by looking at the truth from a number of angles; Asimov's much reprinted The Gentle Vultures which offers an interesting speculation about UFO's and Damon Knight's Stranger Station, demonstrating the outcome when true love meets sheer hate. Some of the best.
