Dangerous Visions


Enormous collection; it feels like I've been reading this for a month. Harlan Ellison put together a collection of stories not published elsewhere, helping to define the New Wave movement of science fiction. Most of what was shocking in the late 60s isn't now, of course, so these stories must stand on their own merits.

I especially enjoyed Gonna Roll the Bones by Fritz Leiber and Auto-da-Fé by Roger Zelazny. For me, If All Men Were Brothers, Would You Let One Marry Your Sister? by Theodore Sturgeon fell flat. Overall rating for the collection, a solid 3.5 stars.
