4.0 out of 5 stars Classics, but deathworld II is abbreviated March 28, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
You've got to love the deathworld series, but be aware... deathworld II, while included in this collection, is an earlier version which was abbreviated, if you've read the full novel you will find about 1/3 of this version is cut suddenly short.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Reader's Digest of Harrison June 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for the Death World books. The first was the way I remembered it...the second was chopped in half with the ending coming right as the best parts were beginning. I felt cheated and realized that Halcyon is simply using this as a teaser for purchasing books two and three; which I will likely do simply because they are good books...once they are fully supported in the E-world (book three is not yet an e-book). The short stories, however, were excellent...well worth what was missing of the Death World Trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Novels & Shorts April 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will admit up front that I am not a big fan of short stories. Having said I will read most shorts by my favorite authors. The shorts in this collection were not bad but not up to his normal quality (but that just be my bias!) The collection as a whole was great with some stories I had not read or even heard of before. I would greatly recommend this collection to all fans and to others that just like a good space story!

4.0 out of 5 stars good deal, March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
its a good deal getting 11 novels in one, but two of the novels are the same story, exactly under different titles, the first and last, so its really 10, still quite a deal and it had a bunch of Harrisonh stories i'd never seen before

4.0 out of 5 stars Old SF March 3, 2013
By medic1
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have liked his writing since I first read his stories while I was in high school in the sixties. Easy to read and I like the way his stories are presented. As with some of the other SF writers I would read anything that they wrote.

4.0 out of 5 stars classics, but includes one story twice November 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The last novel is a repetition, but the collection is worth it if only for the first two novels do deathworld.
