Reviews

Praise for Masterpieces

"[Masterpieces] provides an excellent case for science fiction as a literary form that matters."--Science Fiction Weekly

"Will remind you why you fell in love with science fiction in the first place."--Rocky Mountain News

"The classic stories in this anthology are as well chosen as you might expect, given editor Card's formidable knowledge of the field and his fellow writers, knowledge that makes his introductory comments on each story very good, further enhancing the book's considerable value for the classroom and as an introduction to major stories and writers for nonstudents."--Booklist

"The giants of the genre contribute to this highly accessible collection...Replete with representative tales from the legendary Asimov, Heinlein, Bradbury, Clarke, Gibson, Le Guin, Pohl, Niven, Ellison, and Silverberg, this collection attempts to introduce readers not to the authors' greatest hits but to some of their best but lesser-known works, and it is successful in almost every case."--VOYA
