Reviews of Edge of Tomorrow, the (1985)
Review by clong (2005-10-21)
This collection left me a little bit disappointed. "The Ugly Little Boy" was the only story that I rated as high as an 8. Of the rest, there were several that were good, and several that were fairly mediocre. I had expected to really like the very famous story "Nightfall," but I would put it in the "really good concept, not particularly stunning execution" category. "Belief," a story about a professor who can't convince his colleagues of the truth of his laws of physics defying experiences, was my least favorite.
I tried about half of the non-fiction essays, and found them very dry and largely uninteresting. If you don't come to them with a great reverence for the accomplishments of famous scientists and mathematicians, I doubt they are going to be of much interest.
