    Some thoughts on rereading the individual stories I ve put a next to stories that I think are unique in Delany s body of work mostly these are the highlights of the collection, though in a few cases it was great just to see him try something so different The Star Pit 4 5 I remember this being one of my favorites, and it s still good with lots of interesting ideas and nice character, but a bit obvious Still amazing though for a first published story.Corona 2.5 5 I still don t like this mu Some thoughts on rereading the individual stories I ve put a next to stories that I think are unique in Delany s body of work mostly these are the highlights of the collection, though in a few cases it was great just to see him try something so different The Star Pit 4 5 I remember this being one of my favorites, and it s still good with lots of interesting ideas and nice character, but a bit obvious Still amazing though for a first published story.Corona 2.5 5 I still don t like this much, but even without being remarkable it still shows Delany s early excellent control of tone, and focus on racial working class issues back when nobody wrote that kind of SF Though this approach is developed much better in the other stories Aye and Gomorrah 4.5 5 Beautiful language, fascinating ideas Driftglass 5 5 Genuinely great Compact, beautiful, and intensely sad ...

    overall amazing collection, althoughthe last few fell flat for me Star Lit, driftglass, we along some strange power, and the title story were standouts Delaney is one of my favorite writers Very trippy and interesting without getting confusing or unnecessarily complicated.
