Nostalgia but not literature
For a trip down science fiction's memory lane, this is worth it. Remember though all these later legends started somewhere and this volume shows in abundance, through writing reminiscent of high-school and college essays, exactly where that start was.

Fantastic, some real classics.
A fascinating trip to the future, back in time. It's a bit like Mad Men writing science fiction and makes one realise how much language changes in such a short time. No doubt we will be reading science fiction written today in 50 years and chortling at its colloquialism.
The ideas are still clever though and the plot lines intriguing. The occasionally 'hokey' language and dialogue only serves to remind us of a time when we humans thought that technology was going to solve ALL of our problems. Which warms my heart at least.
