YA-Even readers who generally avoid science fiction can find something enjoyable in this anthology. The 22 stories represent a wide range of authors and time periods. Edgar Allan Poe, Rudyard Kipling, Issac Asimov, Rod Serling, Ray Bradbury, Connie Willis, and Robert Sawyer are among the writers included. The quality of the stories is exceptional; each tale is a thought-provoking experience. From the transportation of Sherlock Holmes to the 21st century to solve an enigma, to a time traveler who refuses to die, to a graduate history student doing his practicum in World War II London, all of the stories are readable, enjoyable, and stimulating. The cover claims that a tale by H. G. Wells is included (it is not). Despite this error, the book is highly recommended for young adults.-Carol DeAngelo, Garcia Consulting Inc., EPA Headquarters, Washington, DC
