The flying Dutchman
Disappointing!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 May 2016
This book disappointed me. I really enjoyed "More Tales" but the solutions here seemed quite far-fetched to me. In order to solve some of these, you would have to be extremely well informed about baseball, Gilbert and Sullivan, details of the Civil War, and so on. (Not to mention John Milton!) As Henry himself states elsewhere (!), I much prefer these kind of riddle stories if you actually have a chance to solve them.
More top quality writing.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 February 2020
Another good collection of short stories from a master puzzler; a very enjoyable read.
Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 March 2015
Delicious short stories, by the master of science-fiction. Relaxing, full of humor.

Kindle Edition is a Pirated FakeReviewed in the United States on 19 October 2015
Those of you buying the Kindle edition of this book should be aware that it cannot possibly be an authorized edition. it was clearly scanned from a printed book, and then converted to text, with no care taken to "fix up" any of the resulting problems. There are numerous scanning conversion errors throughout the book. There is no copyright notice and no table of contents. There isn't even any kind of break between stories. The title of each story is just another paragraph that immediately follows the last paragraph of the preceding story. As far as I can tell, most, or maybe all, the stories that were in the original book are here, but it's difficult to tell for sure. I'd be extremely surprised if the legal publisher of this book, or Asimov's estate, ever sees a dime of the money from this edition.
