Hank Davis is Senior Editor at Baen Books. He served in Vietnam in the Army and has had stories in Analog Science Fiction,The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and anthologies If and Orbit, as well as Harlan Ellison's TheLast Dangerous Visions.
This is a great collection of some 17 science fiction stories ranging the gamut from near-fantasy to kinda nostalgic to hard and fast science fiction.
Some of these stories I really liked, some not so much. Heinlein's "...And He Built a Crooked House" is a work of art, and I really liked Frederick Brown's two contributions "Experiment" and "Answer" are as well written as they are punchy (barely longer than a page!). On the other hand, a couple of stories were very much misses for me ("The Creature from Cleveland Depths" just didn't make any sense to me), but that's okay...that's the strength of a good collection like this.
