    One thought on “The World Treasury of Science Fiction”

    1. This is probably the best science fiction anthology that I have seen.Its attractions are many.1 The Introduction by David HartwellIn his Introduction, Hartwell presents an overview history of science fiction writing, starting in 1929 with Hugo Gernsback s coinage of the term from a previous term, scientific romance In the first issue of Amazing Stories, he defined it as charming romance intermingled with scientific fact and prophetic vision Most of the action in the 1930s occurred in the U.S but [...]

    2. God, where to begin My parents sent me and my sister this book in a care package during a summer music program in 1990, and I don t know that I ve ever loved a book If I could, I d give this one six stars maybe seven.Part of what makes this book so amazing is that this is where I first discovered so many of my favorite authors Larry Niven, John Varley, Ursula K Le Guin, Robert Heinlein okay, he s not a favorite, but I think this book has one of his best And even the writers I ve never sought ou [...]

    3. As good a collection of fine sf as you are likely to find, there are very few clunkers here It is, however, a product of a different era of science fiction and the preponderance of white, male, primarily European voices is a bit of a shock from the perspective of current publishing Since the most recent story was published in 1986 and the earliest, by the venerable John W Campbell, in 1937 this is not surprising but it does leave some of the stories and styles feeling quite dated A World Treasur [...]

    4. I read a LOT of short story collections, and I think the reason why is that I m hoping that SOME day I ll find a collection as good as this one Reading it always brings me back to music camp, where my Mom sent a copy in a care package for my sister and I It was my first look at Kurt Vonnegut Harrison Bergeron and Larry Niven Inconstant Moon and John Varley The Phantom of Kansas and Frederik Pohl The Gold At the Starbow s End and way too many to mention, all of them wonderful Aww, just looking t [...]

    5. This may be the best collection of science fiction I ve yet to encounter It includes not only a chronological range of classic sf stories and novellae by established writers from several countries, but also stories written by well known authors not usually associated with the genre All the stories are, in my opinion, good to excellent I recommend this as a gift for friends who have never gotten interested in the genre.

    6. At long last, after taking around two years to read, I finally finish reading the 1,077 page long World Treasury of Science Fiction it now holds the record for longest length of time that it took to read it in actuality it was less than that, due to graduate school distractions But it would still hold the record either way But man oh man what an incredible anthology If I could give it six stars instead of five I would, for this is, without a doubt, the best introduction to science fiction anybod [...]

    7. This is a massive, wide ranging collection of science fiction pieces, compiled by Hartwell, the long time editor of the Year s Best SF Year s Best Fantasy serieses, a couple of which I have read and enjoyed There can be no question regarding his ability to identify first rate imaginative writing The pieces in this collection run the gamut of SF from the 1930s or 1940s up to 1989, and a number of them are by foreign scribes, mostly from Europe, along with the expected Americans and Englishmen It [...]

    8. Actual rating 4.5 stars.I ve read hundreds of science fiction anthologies over the years I never expect to read than two or three memorable stories per collection the rest are always second rate filler Not this time.I picked this anthology up at a public library sale of discontinued books, which means it s likely out of print, and that s too bad It s a 1,000 plus page collection of short stories and novellas, featuring many of the great science fiction authors and several less familiar foreign [...]

    9. An exhaustive and exhausting survey of world science fiction, this book was a very uneven read Some stories fascinated, some bewildered and not in a good way , and the rest fell somewhere in between A lot of recognizable names were included, but the stories selected were not always among their best known And there were a lot of authors that this reader was completely unfamiliar with One stand out in the bunch was an Italian, Italo Colvino The editor included two of his stories, one of which, The [...]

    10. Being a complete newbie to the Sci Fi genre I read mostly fantasy I picked this up at the library I didn t notice at the time that the book was only one year younger then I am, and the majority of the stories were quite a bit older then the publication date of this collection I enjoyed a few of the stories in it, but not enough that I would recommend this to anyone I m not sure whether it was the age of the writing, and that I m simply not a fan of the styles at the time, or if the stories were [...]

    11. Pretty hit and miss A lot of translations, and quite a few space adventure type stories Here s my favorites Harrison Bergeron, Kurt Vonnegut Jr.The Man Who Lost the Sea, Theodore SturgeonThe Men who Murdered Mohammed, Alfred BesterThe Phantom of Kansas, John VarleyInconstant Moon, Larry NivenThe Gold at Starbow s End, Frederik PohlStranger Station, Damon KnightSecond Variety, Philip K DickVintage Season, Henry Kuttner and C.L Moore though it could be shortened by 80% and be much better for it I [...]

    12. 52 short stories, not all good but definitely worth reading Some of the standouts for me was Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut which I remember reading in high school English The Blind Pilot by Nathalie Charles Henneberg Two Dooms by C.M Kornbluth Ghost V by Robert Sheckley Inconstant Moon by Larry Niven Zero Hour by Ray Bradbury Second Variety by Philip K Dick Party Line by Gerard Klein Vintage Season by Henry Kuttner and C.L Moore The Way to Amalteia by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky.

    13. No Just no.For one thing the book is too damn big and heavy It is impossible to hold it comfortably as you read you need a lectern to prop it up on.For another, the selections aren t very good Some authors seem to have been included just because they were foreign or just because they were historically important to SF, and for some authors I m familiar with, the selection chosen was not one of their best.I have to admit that I only got about a third of the way through, but the stories did not mak [...]

    14. Wow What a great book Already read a John Campbell Jr which is so hard to find Forgetfulness is a total knockout Then the original story that Star Trek was based on, no doubt, named Special Flight by none other than John Berryman himself, very early hard SF What a treasure I m going to take my time with this monster It s a thick and heavy book of shorts novellas

    15. It is good and worth the read The issue is somehow the sum is less than the parts Why include authors who represent the fact that, say, Scandinavian SF is derivative Is it relevant that Chip Delany was a gay black man in the 1960 s Its purpose may have been encyclopedic than entertainment, but that wasn t the possibility that attracted me in the first place.

    16. Some good stories here Unfortunately almost every single one of them were written by men, for men, about men Occasionally a female character would show up, and she would be a cardboard cutout, just getting in the way of the men Unworthy to be called a World Treasury and I m glad it went out of print so quickly

    17. 4 20 11 Pairpuppets 1974 by Manuel van Loggem4 21 11 The Lens 1977 by Annemarie van Ewyck10 21 14 Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius 1956 by Jorge Luis Borges10 21 14 Zero Hour 1947 by Ray Bradbury

    18. an excellent collection of scifi from around the world truly authors from continents as diverse as asia and arabia are represented to great enjoyment and effect.a huge book but no struggle to read

    19. If you just read one anthology of science fiction in your life, make this one it Sublime As it s name implies, it includes authors from around the world instead of just North America and the UK.

    20. A Sun sized book of science fiction that includes the most renowned of sci fi authors, as well as a few that readers would not expect to see.

    21. A wide variety of stories from authors around the world Contains the amazingly good story The Fifth ahead of Cerberus that introduced me to Gene Wolfe.

    22. This is by far the best collection of Sci Fi Short stories i ve ever read Every single story, even the ones that seemed boring at first, ended up being amazing.

    23. Some excellent and inspiring stories from all over This was a gift from my family from years ago I ve been reading the stories off an on since 2006 Recommended
