This is a very nice anthology in the tradition of One Hundred Great Science Fiction Short-short Stories, with lots of very good fantasy short-shorts in it—and exactly one flaw. None of them are by Asimov. Not that it really matters in this case—this book is just about good enough without ’em. But not quite.
