This review is from: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Paperback)
Worth the money just for "Harrison Bergeron," the greatest science fiction story of all time, and my favorite of all genres. It's the perfect story: short, funny, makes its point obvious without being preachy, and includes a scene (where the two main characters, freed from society's imposed handicaps, literally reach for the sky) that stays in your mind forever. If I manage to ever write a story half this good...well, I'm dreaming, I suppose, but this story remains my inspiration every time I sit down to write.
