From Booklist:

Tekno-Books and DAW again rescue some sf short stories from the black hole of out-of-printness. These 22 are the first published stories of as many noteworthy sf writers, from the late Murray Leinster's "Runaway Skyscraper" to Julie E. Czerneda's "First Contact, Inc." The most famous reprised debut here is Orson Scott Card's career- and saga-founding "Ender's Game," but here, too, are the maiden efforts of such household words as Hal Clement, Anne McCaffrey, Arthur C. Clarke, and the late L. Sprague de Camp; of such other well-established writers as George R. R. Martin, Lois McMaster Bujold, Jack McDevitt, and Stephen Baxter; and of the still-rising likes of Michael Burstein and Jerry Oltion, who definitely write well. Be it also noted that eminence hasn't guaranteed frequent reprintings; the de Camp, McCaffrey, and Baxter stories all have had spotty publication histories since their original appearances. For both historical and literary reasons, acquire. Roland Green
