Overall this series was good. Several of the stories were quite humourous, such as GRANDPA?, by Edward M. Lerner,
TO ERR IS INHUMAN, by Marion Zimmer Bradley. WHY I LEFT HARRY’S ALL-NIGHT HAMBURGERS, by Lawrence Watt-Evans, GALACTIC CHEST, by Clifford D. Simak, and DO UNTO OTHERS, by Mark Clifton while still being thought provoking. Others like MOON DOG by Arthur C. Clarke were very touching and of course there were some extremely good classic style sci/fi such as SARGASSO OF LOST STARSHIPS, by Poul Anderson, THE TIME DISSOLVER, by Jerry Sohl, and A BRIEF DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF THE SPHERES, by Michael Kurland.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves classic sci/fi. It is a great read for a great price.
The formatting is excellent, the stories are accessible via an active TOC, and original publishing data is provided. This collection is a terrific value, and while you may not enjoy the aforementioned story as much as I originally did (and still do), you're bound to find more than a few OTHER stories to your liking in this "7th SF Megapack" to make your purchase worthwhile.
It's an anthology, so it is a mixed bag. It was cheap, so i don't feel ripped off. I read it cover to cover, skipping only one or two stories, so it must be pretty entertaining, as I have low tolerance for crap.
Overall, it felt like a lot of good classic science fiction: rousing space opera, interesting ideas, compelling page turners.
It is interesting to look up when each story was published; some are recent, some are ancient. It is fun to see what authors of the 1950s thought the future would be like. Hint: spectacularly wrong for the most part.
There are many other short science fiction stories that would be better suited to a collection of this nature.. and it seems that the publishers have done a sloppy job of selecting the stories.
