I used to love this series, but this book is unreadable. This was crap. The stories were terribly written and had incoherent story lines. When did they start hiring illiterates as editors?

I love science fiction, and I've read thousands upon thousands of works. However, after trying to read the first three stories in this work I gave up. It simply doesn't toe the mark as far as quality writing goes. Now the last time I gave an honest but negative review I was told that such foolishness was open to being weeded out. Anyway, I've given my view on this book.
