    1. Robert Silverberg is one of science fiction s most beloved writers, and the author of such contemporary classics as Dying Inside, Downward to the Earth and Lord Valentine s Castle, as well as At Winter s End, also available in a Bison Books edition He is a past president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and the winner of five Nebula Awards and five Hugo Awards In 2004 the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America presented him with the Grand Master Award Silverberg is one of twenty nine writers to have received that distinction.

    2. Pure gold. Anything I've read by Robert Silverberg is gold, and not only in the sense of "Science Fiction gold", just gold extremely well-crafted stories and novels. Yes, he is one of the 5/6 best SF writers ever, but his style has a characteristic depth that transcends science fiction and turns his work into a unique literary marvel. These stories were written between 1983 and 1987.Silverberg might not be as famous as Asimov or Clarke because he doesn't have a "That One Novel" like 2001 or Foun [...]

    3. ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature. I’m a fan of Silverberg’s stories, so I think this series is wonderful — it’s a sure way to get one copy of each of his most important stories in eight tidy volumes. Volume six, titled Multiples, contains fourteen stories and novellas published in the mid-1980s.In a general introduction to Multiples, Silverberg talks about the state of the short story market in the mid 1980s — how most of the pulps had gone under and been replaced by original an [...]

    4. Long lost story recoveredYears ago I had read a story that epitomizes what science fiction does so well: examining society from a whole new perspective by asking, what if it were different? In this case it was about what if having multiple personalities was the norm and someone with only one felt out of place.It was astonishing in how it forces the reader to re-examine how we categorize people as "normal" or otherwise.But after some years I had forgotten what it was called and who wrote it.Fortu [...]

    5. I enjoyed the stories, and I enjoyed the commentary about how he wrote them. He is a bit egotistical but he has the awards to prove his self belief.

    6. This collection of stories by Silverberg actually filled in a gap for me. In the eighties I was reading fewer short stories so I had only read one of these before. Although one or two show their age, there's a timeless quality to his fiction, focussing on people rather than the "science" in SF or the more obvious fantasy tropes. This is enjoyable for everyone who enjoys good short stories or novellas.opionator.wordpress/2011/0
