So it shouldnt come as too much of a surprise that although this trade paperback was touted as the very last issue of Amazing Stories!--well, it wasnt. After the initial hardcover of this collection was released in 1998, Amazing Stories was bought by Pokémon makers Wizards of the Coast, which revived Hugo Gernsbacks venerated SF periodical and kept it alive until the summer of 2000. But even though this collection of just over 20 short pieces wasnt the magazines last gasp, some of them prove superior to the Star Wars, Star Trek, and Babylon 5 fiction that followed in the Wizards years.

Editor Kim Mohan (who stayed on for the revival) collected then-new works from the likes of Ursula K. Le Guin, Gregory Benford, and Howard Waldrop, as well as other shorts from less-established writers. Of particular note is a Robert Silverberg-Philip K. Dick tandem: a 1953 Amazing reprint of Dicks Noahs Ark-inspired The Builder, followed by Silverbergs praise and ruminations in Quality and Quantity: The Short Fiction of Philip K. Dick.Aside from Noahs Ark, quite a few other ideas get tossed around--everything from divine androgyny to time travel to the parameters of dream flight (the last being the title of a piece by Arlan Andrews Sr.), all at an easily digestible length and most matching the quality of previous Mohan-edited collections.
