Ursula K. Le Guin
"The best stories are timeless. Long years from now the stories here may still touch someone, cause that person to blink, and put the book down for a second, and stare off through the hallow air, and shirver in wonder.
"'Modern Classics of Science Fiction' is the kind of book you use to hook someone on science fiction for life, the sort of landmark anthology that defines a generation of literature."--The Atlanta Journal "An excellent collection of science fiction."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Lives up to its billing." --Publishers Weekly
