This disappointing collection does at least start with two gems: Keith Roberts ‘The Ministry of Children’ (a very dark but well told tale) and Michael Moorcock’s ‘Ancient Shadows’ (which has certainly made me want to read more stories from his ‘The Dancers at the End of Time’ setting). Matthew Paris’s tale (which is towards the end of the collection) ‘The Journal of Bodley Clive’ is also worth a read, and will delight Lovecraft fans. The rest of the fiction, I am afraid to say, is dross that los...
I came across a copy of this book in a remaindered book shop in about 1980. It blew my mind! It introduced me to a whole new world (!) of SF and fantasy. I had never read anything by Michael Moorcock at this point, and his short story in the book was weird but brilliant. A great introduction to the new wave SF of the sixties and seventies.
