Reviews of Song for Lya, a (1976)

Review by clong (2004-11-29)
This collection of 10 early Martin short stories is ambitious, if at times uneven. Several of the stories tackle thorny, morally ambiguous issues (for example, in With Morning Comes Mistfall scientific progress is detrimental; in Override it's the good people who are animating zombies vs. the bad people who are animating zombies). My favorites were Mistfall, Dark, Dark Were the Tunnels, and the title story.
