With this collection he reveals a multifaceted talent to heighten that reputation.

In 'Pohlstars' he is still doing what he has always done best, fabricating absurd systems and predicaments, chilling and comic by turns, around characters observed with sympathy even if they are psychotic murderers" - Times Literary Supplement / "By the master of dystopic visions, Fred Pohl. Versatility of themes and treatments is his trade mark" - Tribune / "The touch of the master-craftsman" - The Scotsman:- (original cost £3.50). Seller Inventory # 12.007.00001
