Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The second anthology of short fiction by winners of the Grand Master Nebula Award offers work by Andre Norton, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Alfred Bester, and Ray Bradbury. It is something of a mixed bag, because Norton wrote comparatively little short fiction and because, of Asimov's host of short pieces, the only major one included is "The Martian Way." On the other hand, Bester's stories haven't been reprinted nearly often enough, except for "Fondly Fahrenheit" (which reappears here). Furthermore, Clarke and Bradbury are represented by mixtures of well-known classics and superior but less well known pieces. Finally, in the separate author introductions, Grand Master Pohl cogently remarks on his peers. So although this may not be the most useful acquisition for collections possessing shelves of anthologies already, it ranks high in readability and sf historical and critical interest. Roland Green

Review

“Pohl has done an excellent job of including stories that capture the essence of their authors while representing a variety of their work . . . The SFWA Grand Masters is a fascinating and entertaining sampler tray, an excellent starting point and hors d'oeuvre for the whole of modern SF.” ―Gary K. Wolfe, Locus --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I'm the first to review this book. Hope this will be helpful to would be buyers.
This book is not very interesting for an advanced SF reader. Why?
Writers featured in this book are Asimov, Bester, Bradbury, Clarke and Norton. Good and popular writers, but their work is still very easy to come by. Want stories of Asimov? Buy his two-volume collection. Same for Bradbury, who has a very nice one-volume collection, and for Clarke and Bester. The stories in this anthology will tell you that these writers deserve to have a single-author collection on your bookshelves. Why buy stories you already own?
For starters then. Buy this book. Some stories in here are classics, others are mere filler. They point out to you their writers' vision. Still, it's your decision. The truth: There are better anthologies out there.
Whatever your decision, do check out the first item in this series. It's somewhat better.
I appreciate this series. A good Idea. You won't throw your money away.

...to older authors. If you read Gardner Dozois' anthology, you get a lot of the new writers, but this is where I first read some of Bester's work--great stuff.

This is the first book I've bought for my son that he really loves. He adores all things monster trucks and is very artistic. Highly recommend for kids like mine.
