Since the Neanderthals were discovered they've been the subject of endless speculation--how did they live, why didn't they survive? In these stories of course they DO survive in one fashion or another into the age of modern man, and that sets up all kinds of interesting stories.
There are twelve stories here in all and the quality ranges a bit--I suspect pickings were smaller given the subject matter. I absolutely loved a couple of them: "The Treasure of Odirex" was fantastic and I really enjoyed "The Gnarly Man". As always there were a couple that didn't engage me very much but of course that's the beauty of collections like this--if one doesn't work for you you can just move on to the next. It's still a good collection.
Very recommended for fans of these Asimov collections, good science fiction collections, and/or fans of an unusual subject matter.
