    One thought on “The World Turned Upside Down”

    1. Undoubtedly the best anthology I've ever read. Ever. Purportedly a collection of the science fiction and fantasy short stories which made the greatest impression on the three editors when in their teens (the 1950s), these stories range across the early decades of science fiction and fantasy. Among them are stories that genuinely creeped me out ("Who Goes There?" is why I don't read horror) and brought an emotional response greater than the best dying-puppy tale.A great read.

    2. Excellent collection of 29 SF stories, by 29 different authors. The seven I have liked most have been the following: - The menace from Earth by Robert Heinlein- Black destroyer by A.En Vogt- The aliens by Murray Leinster- The cold equations by Tom Godwin- Turning point by Poul Anderson- Omnilingual by H.Beam Piper- Thunder & roses by Theodore Sturgeon

    3. Best feature is finding more authors, titles. Mostly tragic, so funny preferred. Gentle Earth's harsh weather - hurricane, flood, volcano, snow - conquers alien troops who slow down in the cold. Leinster's Aliens turn disastrous first contact with Plumies into happy-ever-after. Poul Anderson's Turning Point starts "Please, mister, could I have a cracker for my oontatherium?" p 500.In Black Destroyer by A. E. Van Vogt, a catlike alien Coeurl boards human exploration team spaceship, eats them for [...]

    4. This was a great anthology. You can get it free on the web. Try this url hell/szymon/Baen/The%20bestA lot of the science fiction greats were included. The book included stories by Tom Godwin, Robert Heinlein, and C.L. Moore. Some stories had fantasy and horror mixed in. Read it if you like sci-fi.

    5. For the longest time I thought this was an alternate history collection. Neither the title nor the cover did anything to disabuse me of this notion. Not sure why it took me so long to get around to reading it, given that 1) I love AH and 2) I think the short story is the perfect form for AH most of the time. Considering it was edited by Baen, Drake, and Flint, I had no concern about the quality. So I have no clue what kept me away from it. But as of last week, I fixed that, picking up the local [...]

    6. I did love some of the stories in this collection (plus I'd never read the Heinlein before and I liked it). I rarely mind misogyny in sci-fi books (seriously! See aforementioned comment re: Heinlein), but the general vibe of this was a bit much for me. Basically, my problem with the book was this: the stories were ones that had some impact on the three editors when they were teenage boys (almost every intro included the line "I first read this when I was 13"), and I don't have much in common wit [...]

    7. As stated in the preface the purpose of this anthology was, I quote "to select those stories which had the most impact on us as teenagers [in the '50s and '60s] and got us interested in science fiction in the first place". This subjective selection criterion explains the value inequality of the stories selected.

    8. Good airplane trash. Varies from totally credible to total not credible. Keeps ones mind off the agony that is modern travel except for the interruption to remove clothing for the search. Gets you a few frowns from the humorless. Most of the authors are NOT contemporaries which seems to assure readability, plot, and telling.

    9. An brilliant collection of classic science fiction short stories, from funny to action packed to horrifying. Every story is excellent, and many are hard to find anywhere else. This collection exposed me to authors I haven't read before and has several gems from famous authors. A must read for any classic sci fi fan.

    10. Favorite sf short stories from Baen, Drake and Flint. All of them are classics, some (such as Campbell's "Who Goes There?" somewhat difficult to find, and, if you're like me, you remember just about each and every one of these stories in a very favorable light.

    11. That true rarity: an anthology where I didn't even mildly dislike any of the stories. Some old friends, some classics, and a couple that were new to me. Excellent!

    12. Highlights - "Rescue Party," "Pail of Air," "Goblin Night," "Aliens," "All the Way Back," "Who Goes There?," "Last Question."

    13. I found half of this Online and read the first 7 stories. Very good read from when SF was simpler and more optimistic.

    14. A good anthology of mid-20thC SF, but not really my bag at this point in my life. Honestly, I'd give it a 2.5.
