This is a collection of very good early science fiction. The selection is varied enough within the genre that you will find something to love here. No complaints about the quality of the writing. The readers all range from good to excellent as well. Where this collection fails is in the packaging and presentation.
The disks all come in a thick plastic box that does not stay reliably latched. The disks sit loosely on a spindle inside this case, I guess there's about twenty of them. Nowhere in the package is there a table of contents showing which work is on what disk, and which chapters. They just run, one after another. About half the disks skip badly on the last chapter, they may or may not for you. As this is CD encoding rather than mp3, each story spans two or three disks. You fiddle around, sorting through a stack of loose cds, to swap out and continue the story. This is just not the way to package a collection of this kind.
While I love most of these stories, the substandard packing will prevent me from buying the other two volumes.
