This book contains much of his good short story work from the 1980's and early 1990's. There is some good to almost great work still coming from the Typewriter/Word Processor of Silveberg. His shorts and novellas like "Mulipules", "Sailing to Byzantuim", "House of Bones" and "Enter a Soldier. Later:Enter another" are all of high caliber

The 1953-58 stories collected in To Be Continued, the first of this series of volumes, are respectable professional work, some better than others but all of them at least minimally acceptable-but most of them could have been written by just about anyone. Aside from a few particularly ambitious items, they were designed to slip unobtrusively into the magazines of their time, efficiently providing me with regular paychecks.

Robert Silverberg published reams of science fiction stories in the 1950s, all of them competently written and scientifically literate, but many of them undistinguished potboilers. He left the science fiction magazines in 1958 for the more lucrative world of nonfiction, but was lured back into the SF field in 1962 when Frederik Pohl, then editing Galaxy, offered him greater literary freedom than the magazines of the 1950s had.

Silverberg responded with "To See the Invisible Man," a story light on gadgetry but long on psychological and sociological explorations. As the 1960s went on, Silverberg's work became more and more profound, proving that SF could explore the themes that had been regarded as the exclusive domain of "serious" literature.

This superb anthology contains 21 short pieces (mostly short stories, but some novelettes and novellas), chosen by Silverberg himself from his 1962-1969 production. While not every story here is of equal quality, the anthology includes some of the greatest science fiction works of all time. Beginning with "To See the Invisible Man," the anthology also contains searing stories like the dark "Flies," the brilliantly experimental "Sundance," the cynical "Hawksbill Station," the daring "Passengers" and the zen-like "The Sixth Palace." All of the usual SF tropes are here-- time travel, space travel, alien invasions, future societies-- but so are explorations of existentialism, free will, alienation, religious doubt and the nature of reality. Very highly recommended.

Something about Silverberg's writing style just really puts me off. I finished this collection, but could not get all the way through Volume 3. I find it extremely annoying how often he repeats a sentence (I assume for emphasis). Maybe it was novel at the time, but he utilizes it relentlessly and it drives me batty. Other than that, there are some interesting concepts here, but the writing style is either dated or I'm too daft to appreciate how fine it is. I get the feeling at times that he was more interested in seeing how much he could "challenge" the reader than in telling a great or interesting story.

This is the SF I love -imaginative, thought provoking stories that satisfy. Silverberg introduction to each story gives historical background for both the author's career and SF journey as it develops as a genre. If you love the work of the great SF writers from this time period, you will love this series.

Great book. Henry Kuttner is an amazing writer.

This book includes a few brilliant stories. First (in terms of quality, chronological order, and position in the book) is To See the Invisible Man, a fascinating and well-written take on the concept of shunning. There's Going Down Smooth, about a broken AI psychiatrist; the theme is nothing new today, but I am guessing back in 1968, before cyberpunk was invented, it may have been revolutionary. Then there's The Pleasure of Their Company, a very interesting story about guilt, loyalty, and delusion; and After the Myths Went Home, a compact, tightly-written story with a very satisfying ending.

So: four short stories that I truly recommend everyone to read.

Unfortunately, the rest of the book consists of generally unsatisfying and sometimes mediocre writing that I doubt would appeal to anyone who does not share Mr. Silverberg's sexual hangups. (On the other hand, if the concept of a human male temporarily marrying seventeen alien sisters is as titillating for you as it clearly is for the author, then hey, this book just might be perfect for you.)

Anyway, the question you should ask yourself is, are 4 excellent short stories (+ ballast) worth the $23?

The above poor rating is NOT for the book as advertised - I'm sure it's just fine - but for the content as delivered to me by Amazon Kindle.

I ordered this volume, and the cover page and first few pieces of information show "To The Dark Star - Volume 2" but ALL THE STORIES are from "To Be Continued - Volume 1"!

I don't know how this happened, but I can't seem to get Amazon to fix it!

I consider myself a minor authority on early Sci-Fi having read 250+ novels and hundreds of short stories in the genre. I am a fan of Robert Silverberg but I would have to say that this is not Silverberg's best work, which came later, but it was an enjoyable read nonetheless. The author gives ample reason for this as his life was in turmoil during much of this time and it took a toll on his ability to fully express himself (magazine deadlines, house fire, etc.).
I had read many of these stories when I was a child. They were full of wonder then, and still are fresh when I re-read them. Silverberg is a master.
