    " Fairly poor - believe there was better in the year "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Summers.Stay | 9/19/2013

    " I especially liked "Triceratops Summer," which I took to be about the meaning of our actions in the face of the reality of death. Also "The Fate of Mice" which was a response to "Flowers for Algernon." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 7/15/2012

    " A worthwhile anthology of stories, some touching, some provocative, some much better than others. Two, "The Fate of Mice" and "Triceratops Summer", are worth the price of purchase alone. A mixed bag but a great time-passer. "

    " A short story collection with the usual assortment of good, bad, and indifferent. Overall, worth reading.

    In my opinion the best stories in it are "The Fate of Mice", "'You' by Anonymous", "The Jenna Set", and "Understanding Space and Time". "
