This book gets 5 stars just because....
I found this book, as if dropped by God, lying in my path walking from the school bus-stop. I wish I could remember the year - early to mid 80's I suppose. It was the first science fiction book I read. I devoured each short story and wanted more. I cleaned out the meager Clarke collection at our library which led me to others. Herbert, Heinlein, Delany, the list goes on.
I later found out that it had fallen out of a neighbor's pocket on his drunken trek from the local bar. I still believe that providence/fate/aliens put in my way. This book sent a poor gay kid living in the rural south on journeys that without it he could never taken. I have taken journeys of the mind, body and spirit into the vastness of the cosmos and into the realms of smallest particles - stories telling me that there is more out there than the little patch of earth that was my world.. It is difficult to write but I think that science fiction may have had a great part in “getting me out alive.”
I've never gone back to these stories for fear that some magic would be lost, but it was the beginning of an incredible ride.
