However, it is missing pictures and illustrations from the original book. No illustrations by Ed Emshwiller. The story by Gahan Wilson is totally incomprehensible without the ink blots. That said, at $2.99, it is nice to have most of the stories at my fingertips on my Kindle. I have the original in hardcover, so I am not missing anything. I just don't want to carry that tome around. Like I said, I paid $2.99 for it. I see it is now up to $8.99. Without the illustrations, I think that is not a good deal and I am not sure I would have paid that. With the illustrations, I may have paid more than $8.99. Not sure how much more, but it is a good collection of stories. I would recommend getting the print version.
Editor Harlan Ellison made an effort to do thoughtful intros for each story, and these intros are an important part of the book (although you can read the stories without the intros).
I love the intro to the Joanna Russ story: Harlan skewers Keith Laumer for a non-woke chauvinistic passage in one of Keith's novels (Laumer is one of my all-time favorite SF authors, IMO he oughta have gotten a "grandmaster"). Laumer's stupid chauvinism is why he is NOT my favorite author. Harlan's skewering of Keith has made Harlan one of my favorite SF authors, too! Before the skewering, I thought Harlan's work was just too depressing to make him a favorite author ... if I want depression, reality offers plenty of that ... but hey, I can forgive if I have a reason to do so, and the skewering is a powerful reason. Harlan, I hope you're reading this. Well done!
