The Love of Frank Nineteen

by David Carpenter Knight

A somewhat whimsical tale of two robots who fall in love. The writing is middle-of-the-rode, but the storyline is somewhat interesting. With the Supreme Court having recently diluted the meaning of marriage, this story leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

Love Story

by Irving Cox

A cheesy story of role reversal of historical gender roles. Disregarding the more outlandish elements of the story, it is not so far off in its prediction of the future direction of our society as it was when written back in 1956. If you're female, prepare to be offended.

Notwithstanding the silliness, it is a somewhat interesting read, and the writing is at least average.

The Machine Stops

by E.M. Forster

I'm not as thrilled with the story as other readers. It's not bad - just too cerebral for me, and I dislike dreary endings.

This dystopian tale reveals a time when Man is totally dependent on Machine - and Machine fails. Predictable at a high level, but interesting tid-bits along the way.

The Lost Warship

by Robert Moore Williams

There's no doubt that the writing in this story is cheesy - and the cheese is Swiss because there are holes all in it. For example: "They were so far away they looked like gnats. Jap bombers. Big fellows. Four-engined jobs." Amazing how you can make out four engines on something the size of a gnat.

Anyway, despite a terribly boring start and all the silly science and immature writing, the story has enough driving force to keep interest up until the end. For this reason I grudgingly give it 3 stars.

Zapped back in time, a WWII battleship crew faces an advanced prehistoric civilization that is determined to extinguish them.
