Quick review of a book I leave in the car for long waits and ferry rides. This collection of Alan Dean Foster short stories is pretty good overall, though the best is the first. These were written between 1971 and 1977, and each tale is introduced by the author with anecdotes. This book is also famous for the story "Why Johnny Can't Speed" from 1971, which probably inspired the Car Wars game. Next into the car is likely the sequel, ...Who Needs Enemies?, which covers 1976 to 1983.
