    1. Galactic Dreams by Harry Harrison, a Weltenbummler cosmopolitan whose writing career took off via his young family s penny saving 1950s year in Mexico, residence in six countries, visiting 60 in 30 years, autographing illegal editions in Russia, Germany, Finland expanded language, culture, assumptions beyond borders 12 short stories, each eerily close and far viewpoints illustrated in realistic gray shading by Bryn Barnard Humor in some too much is disappointing secondary to suspense, fear in T [...]

    2. Like most short story anthologies, the quality of these 12 stories varies greatly I must admit I d never heard of Harry Harrison before and found this book in a charity bin in Tesco s.The stories range from mildly interesting to completely pointless Only one of them sticks in my mind I Always Do What Teddy Says which is a very cool idea, however the rest of the stories I couldn t even give you the gist of, and this is only a few days after reading them.Galactic Dreams, like most dreams, gets for [...]

    3. I was kinda disappointed Then again, while I love the Stainless Steel Rat books, I never was thrilled with Harrison s Bill the Galactic Hero stuff shrug Fortunately, there was only one BtGH story in this, but the rest of the stories were meh for me I would ve liked at least one story I could point to in the future as something I d re read.

    4. A nice sampling of Harrison s work, though too short I m going to have to reread a longer set of his stories at some point Favourite HMM, either At Last, the True Story of Frankenstein or Simulated Trainer

    5. Stories were great and the galactic bill was a pleasant bit of nostalgia Be warned though most of the stories are not humor like the cover would portray.
