    1. I picked this up while nosing around an antique shop My copy is battered its front cover is torn and disfigured its spine is bent into a sadistic and perilous curve its pages are bloated and distorted from what I can only guess is water damage If it weren t such a thick book, I d have scoffed at the 2 I paid for it.As it is, there is something familiar about The Mammoth Book of Short Science Fiction Novels I feel like I ve read some of these stories before and maybe I have, since their inclusion [...]

    2. The Mammoth book of series during the late 90s were a treasure trove of material for me I was still exploring science fiction and fantasy and with little guidance or suggestions of what to look for these books were a window in to a world I was just starting to hesitantly explore This book is a perfect example, it contains some truly classic stories such as Who goes there by John W Campbell This story went on to be the inspiration of John Carpenters The THING I guess to some who have read or at t [...]

    3. This book does exactly what it says on the tin, except these days we d call the stories novellas rather than short novels There s a lot to like in this collection, although some that I didn t enjoy as well.The collection starts with Isaac Asimov s Profession , which is a solid Golden Age story of a future where knowledge is injected directly into the brains of people at the appropriate age, and about what happens to those few for whom the process doesn t work John W Campbell s Who Goes There is [...]

    4. The book consists of 13 science fiction novellas all written between 1950 and 1980 At the outset, I am a bit disappointed that I didn t like the book as much as I thought I would The start was fantastic, with Isaac Asimov s Profession , where he manages to narrate a story that s universal and timeless I wasn t particularly impressed with John Campbell s, though it was made into comics and movies Lester Del Ray s For I am Jealous People has an intriguing plot in which God abandons the human race [...]

    5. A collection of short novels here from some of the biggest names in science fiction Some will be familiar Who Goes There for example is the original story on which The Thing horror film is based.Similarly, Enemy Mine will be familiar to almost all science fiction fans Even if you ve never read this or seen the film, there is barely a science fiction series that has not used its basic premise in an episode.Those two aside, this collection is very much a mixed affair My favourites are For I am a J [...]

    6. There s quite a lot of good work in here Every story in the book is solid nothing overly amazing, but nothing better than very good It s been a while since I actually read it due to a month without internet access, I m only entering my September October reading at the start of November , so I can t say too much about the individual sotries I found Flash Crowd , in particular, to be thought provoking some of the best sci fi is just taking an idea to its logical conclusions.
