{Download Pdf} The Science Fiction Weight Loss BookAuthor Isaac Asimov – Vivefutbol.co

I m giving this anthology 4 stars practically just on the strength of the story Fat Farm by Orson Scott Card I read this than 30 years ago and still remember it I recall it being a strong collection overall, though with stories by Asimov, Steven King, H.G Wells, and T Coraghessan Boyle to boot Asimov dug deep for this anthology. Yes, George R.R Martin did once collaborate with Asimov on editing a book You might win a bet in a con suite with that trivia question It s something of an unusual and uneven collection good stories by Orson Scott Card, Frederik Pohl, and Kit Reed the H.G Wells was an interesting curiosity there s a nice story by Stephen King, though an excerpt from Thinner would have been a better choice. Boa ideia mas na pr tica n o convence muito Os contos s o desiguais e a tradu o deplor vel Vale pela introdu o do Asimov que bastante ir nica e t pica do mestre Thinly conceived ha , this anthology has yielded stories that are silly and antiquated The Stretch , banal genre fare Quitters, Inc , pretentious and insubstantial Boyle and Lafferty s contributions , and the single most monstrously stupid story I have ever read Vance Aandahl s awful, stupid and worthless Sylvester s Revenge , which has got to be the dumbest piece of shit ever submitted for publishing your auntie s Scrubs fan fiction is better literature There may be winners I have not yet delved into, but I thought Orson Scott Card s story was good. Something I would not normally be drawn to read but ended up really enjoying it Reminds me to stay open to all genres of fiction. A dated but still relevant collection of amusing, horrific, satisfying, and boring short stories on fat with a science fiction backdrop. 12 15 86 No library.
