The book arrived safely today and brightened this gloomy November day. I hope the stories are readable, as Nebula is a distinguished award. :-) Thank you again for organizing the lottery!

Most of the stories were okay but slightly boring. There were interesting story ideas (like "The Fifth Head of Cerberus") but the writing style was mostly tedious and lacked excitement.

One story I loved and one I hated. The gem of the collection was defenitely "When it Changed" by Joanna Russ. No wonder it won the Nebula! It was wonderfully succint story describing a fundamental change in the society of the protagonists. Just compare it to the previous story ("Patron of the Arts") in which women were objects, literally and nothing more. I couldn't force myself to read it through, ugh.

Caught this paper back from Finncon 2012. I tend to like these kind of collections of science fiction stories! Many thanks for this one! :)

Edit: seuraavaksi Kasenkalle... :)

I usually enjoy these kind of older but timeless Sci-Fi short stories with classic themes. These eight stories were introduced by the master himself, Isaac Asimov. On the basis of these strong introductions (and Nebula Awards) I probably had too high hopes. For example, I was very fascinated by the introduction of "The Fifth Head of Cerberus" but found the story itself quite tedious. I agree with Thalasse on "When it Changed" being the best story of this collection.

Thanks for sharing!

Picked up at Finncon 2014, love most of Asimov's work. Hopefully this isn't dissapointing!
