Frederik Pohl (1919-2013) was one of science fiction's most important authors. Among his many novels are Gateway, which won the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, the Hugo Award, the Locus SF Award, and the Nebula Award, Beyond the Blue Event Horizon, which was a finalist for the Hugo and Nebula Awards, and Jem, which won the 1980 National Book Award in Science Fiction. He also collaborated on classic science fiction novels including The Space Merchants with Cyril M. Kornbluth. Pohl was an award-winning editor of Galaxy and If, a book editor at Bantam, and served as president of the Science Fiction Writers of America. He was named a Grand Master of Science Fiction by SFWA in 1993, and was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.From Booklist:
The second anthology of short fiction by winners of the Grand Master Nebula Award offers work by Andre Norton, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Alfred Bester, and Ray Bradbury. It is something of a mixed bag, because Norton wrote comparatively little short fiction and because, of Asimov's host of short pieces, the only major one included is "The Martian Way." On the other hand, Bester's stories haven't been reprinted nearly often enough, except for "Fondly Fahrenheit" (which reappears here). Furthermore, Clarke and Bradbury are represented by mixtures of well-known classics and superior but less well known pieces. Finally, in the separate author introductions, Grand Master Pohl cogently remarks on his peers. So although this may not be the most useful acquisition for collections possessing shelves of anthologies already, it ranks high in readability and sf historical and critical interest. Roland Green
