The Happy Unfortunate

by Robert Silverberg

A wonderful premise ruined by amateur writing, bad dialogue, no real plot, and a grade-school ending. A complete waste of time.

Hard Guy

by H.B. Carleton

I'll save you 5 minutes of reading the story: A man picks up a hitch hiker who claims to be a big-time criminal. The last paragraph of the story reveals the "man" to be an 11-year-old boy with a big imagination. Totally implausible that someone would believe a young boy to be an older hardened criminal, which ruins the intended twist/joke combination.

Skip this one.

The Happy Man

by Gerald W. Page

A truly excellent story. The characters are highly developed and believable, the plot is certain, and interest is maintained throughout. There is a good twist at the end that I didn't see coming.

This is a dystopian tale about an outcast in a world where most of the population spends their lives merely dreaming. Our hero's goal is to wake everyone and destroy the dream-based civilization.

The Hammer of Thor

by Charles Willard Diffin

I think this story was written by an 8th grader and edited by a 9th grader. Rarely will you find word-smithing so terrible. I stopped after about two pages to calm the rising nausea. Should be rated half a star.

Do yourself a favor and skip this one.
