    1. I still judge a writer by his short fiction. The better you can make 10 pages read the higher on the food chain you are. It was not a surprise that the authors i've never heard of wrote mediocre stories while the ones with accolades wrote with captivation. Further more I don't know who you are William F. Nolan and I am glad you put this book together but putting your short story after one by sci-fi giant Orson Scott Card is a bad move.

    3. At various points I would stop and wonder why I was reading stories in honor of Ray Bradbury rather than stories by Ray Bradbury. (Although there is a story by RB here, and an afterword. His lack of embarrassment at participating in his own tribute is typical, but kind of charming.) Uneven, but not bad. Favorites: James Kisner, Roberta Lannes, R.C.

    4. There's one story and one essay by Ray Bradbury in this collection. The rest of the stories in this tribute anthology are by other established science fiction writers.

    5. I thought most of the short stories were okay. With Listia backed up, I guess this volume is headed for eBay. =)
