    1. Nice anthology, four stories are absolutely terrific in here. Joanna Russ' "Gleepsite" and Barry Malzberg's "Gehenna" are landmarks in the genre, and could be taught at university level. (The Russ already is, the Malzberg probably is not, although Samuel R. Delany says he does teach Malzberg now and then). Gleepsite is Russ' unique phantasmagorical science fiction, requiring multiple readings and still not yielding everything. Complex, strange, thoughtful - the usual from her, really. The Malzbe [...]

    2. We moved last summer across the country, selling our home after 40 years in Memphis. Getting rid of the stuff we'd accrued started with our library. Goodwill in Memphis received hundreds and hundreds of books from our library, including an awful lot of SF. The SF we kept, other than a dozen or so seminal works, is all short story collections. The "____Annual World's Best SF" series is part of that. I kept the 1972, '73, '74 & '76 editions for our new library.Donald Wollheim was editor of the [...]

    3. Also published as: Wollheim's world's best SF : series one / Here is a time capsule of what was considered to be the best SF short stories of 40 years ago. I found it to be a mixed bag - with enjoyable pieces by sf legends Larry Niven, Poul Anderson, Arthur C. Clarke and Theodore Sturgeon; interesting stories by Stephen Tall and R.A. Lafferty; and an incomprehensible piece by Joanna Russ.SF SS - The fourth profession / Larry Niven -- Gleepsite / Joanna Russ -- The bear with the knot on his tail [...]

    4. Really enjoyable anthology of 40+ year old sci-fi, with entries by a number of still well-known authors such as Larry Niven, Poul Anderson, Alan Dean Foster, Arthur C. Clarke, Harlan Ellison, and Theodore Sturgeon. There are 14 stories in here, and I enjoyed every one of them. Donald Wollheim really knew what he was doing when it came to picking out quality science fiction. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the genre - don't let the age of the book steer you away.

    5. I read this during a break from college, having obtained it from the Science Fiction Book Club, with whom I'd long maintained a membership, albeit intermittantly. Like all volumes in this series, the authors are established ones, the stories generally good. Here, my favorite was the one by Ellison.

    6. I'm still reading it, so I don't have a comprehensive review. Thus far I've encountered essentially equal parts 'great story', 'pretty good', and 'egh'. I suppose I'll have to come back to this review once I'm finished, if that's allowed.

    7. The last story, by Theodore Sturgeon, was really excellent, and the Harlan Ellison story was pretty great too!

    8. "You're an optimistic bleeder, aren't you?""Realistic, dear boy. It's being right all the time that keeps me cheerful."

    9. Number ten in my quest to review all nineteen Annual World’s Best SF anthologies!The Fourth Profession, Larry NivenWell what do you know. I’ve read a few things by Larry Niven and straight-up disliked most of them, but this one was very fun. A few mysterious aliens have landed on Earth, and a bartender happens to get one of them way too drunk and is given pills that essentially give him superpowers. It’s well-paced and funny, with likable characters and surprisingly high stakes. The ending [...]
