Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had thought that I had read all of Simak's short stories and novels when I stumbled across this obscure little book from Great Britain. It came as a pleasant surprise. Here are four stories all dealing with time. "The Birch Clump Cylinder" and "The Marathon Photograph" both deal with travel through time. "The Whistling Well" and "Grotto of the Dancing Deer" deal with survivors from an ancient past. All represent the master at the top of his form ("Grotto of the Dancing Deer" won the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards for 1980.) Even the introduction is better than average and a sincere homage by the editor (who actually traveled to Minnesota and western Wisconsin to meet the man and see the country that he incorporated in so many of his tales.)

This is science fiction for both the thinking and the feeling person.
