These Stories Stuck With Me for 20 Years

I read this anthology several times as a teenager in the '80s. I've never forgotten several of the stories. In fact, between the latest world events, the 2004 election season, the 2004 Olympics, several of the stories kept popping back into mind unbidden this summer. So I acquired an unscratchable itch to revisit the book, and here I am. The review by Randy Stafford is dead-on; there are a half-dozen real gems in the book and then there are some more forgettable stories. However, since I find that the gems are still sparkling in my memory some 15-20 years after I last read the book, and it's only in the context of this anthology and its general theme of competition that they shine together, I have to argue that the anthology deserves more than Randy's 3 stars. I've found this is a collection that my bookshelf can't be without any longer!
