    1. This is a very good story collection by the great William Tenn; not so good as THE WOODEN STAR, but definitely worth reading. Tenn is a sort of bridge between the Golden Age SF of the 1940s and the more sophisticated and worldly 'New Wave' SF of the 1960s; in fact he is probably the missing link between Ray Bradbury and Brian Aldiss.The finest story in this collection is 'The Servant Problem', which is quite frankly one of the best SF stories I have ever read by any author. It's a brilliantly fu [...]

    2. A collection of short stories written by William Tenn (penn name of Philip Klass) in the late 1940's & early 1050's. For me, the most memorable of them is "The Servant Problem", which begins "This was the day of complete control", which has a real twist of an ending.

    3. A secret army race to the moon finds they are beaten, but by whom?An art historian from the future travels back to meet his favorite artist, who doesn't at all live up to his expectations.A sleazy supervisor is interested in the unique lady under his employment and finds that his interest leads to trouble.The 'Servant of All' likes to lead from behind, but unbeknownst to him is manipulated by his advisor, who likewise is manipulated by his therapist, who is A criminal ameboid alien absconds from [...]

    4. I never met a William Tenn story I didn't like. "Project Hush" - if you've been in the military, it may take some real internal struggle to understand the humor. If you don't like the military, it will probably just make you angry. If you are on some other plane, then you might give a smirk, sneer, smile, snicker, or laugh out loud. How true."Wednesday's Child" is horrific. I'm sure Lovecraft would have enjoyed it, and worked a sequel for it. The tiel piece, "The Human Angle," is so short, but a [...]

    5. Some stories are soso (The human angle), some are really good. I think his strong suit is his sense of humor. The story about the villainous amoeba, that is selling amoeba porn to underage amoebas und even a human, was really hilarious. I also found that the stories don't feel as dated as many others that are from the 50´s

    6. A fun collection of tales from 1954 and 1955 (except for the title story from 1948). Tenn's irony is a joy to read. I loved his fake biography (Tenn was not his real name and he really worked at Bell Labs).
