Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has been out for a year is it no one has got around to reviewing it yet? This is a republished and embiggened version of the 1960's paperback best of collections of Kuttner & Moore (and where possible to distinguish, of one or other of them). The contents are in the Book Description above, but there is no point repeating all 24 listings in full. There are some Hogben stories, some Galloway Gallegher, and a whole bunch of classic sci-fi and horror stories. Most of these works were written in the early-mid 1940's, but you would not know it to read them - they are of all types, from horror to think-piece sci-fi, with some post-apocalyptic stuff and set in "our" 1940's world, or in various futures through a glass darkly.

There is a huge range of work here, told in several styles: from serious think-piece sci-fi about evolution and the future of humanity, to the hilarious Hogben tales, to the superb Galloway Gallegher stories. There is usualy a hint - or more than a hint - of dystopia here, and often none more chilling than in the background of the Galloway stuff. Thought-transference, AI takeovers of humanity, leprechauns...and a wartime story involving a baby, a gorilla and Nazi spies which is just a great romp from start to finish. There is something here for everyone, assuming if you like classic sci-fi in a short story format.

Having read some earlier Kuttner and Moore, I am surprised by the focus on children and childhood in a lot of these stories - that might be a common theme, and I will simply note that as far as I know they were in fact childless, and leave it at that. Certainly the stories are aimed at adults - its quite dark in places, complex, and not at all YA.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Scadhog on February 28, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Massive collection of science fiction and fantasy stories from the greatest writing team in the history of the genres: Henry Kuttner and C. L. Moore. Kuttner and Moore were successful writers on their own, but following their marriage they reached new heights as collaborators. Their very different writing styles blended perfectly, and the results of their collaboration were nothing short of superb.

In a very real sense they dominated the science fiction field during World War II, and helped pave the way for future writers by de-emphasizing hard science in favor of sociology and psychology. Plus they were so much fun to read!

These 24 stories might not be their best nor their most famous--you won't find "Vintage Season", or "Mimsy Were the Borogoves" or "No Woman Born" here--but "Return to Otherness" is a terrific collection nonetheless, and it is a delight to have these fine tales preserved in hard cover at last.
