** This collection of short stories was mostly as awful as its name suggests. Among Others inspired me to read some old / classic scifi, so I picked it up to get a taste of lots of different authors. Even without the offensive casual sexism and racism, there was little to like. You try to make allowances for vintage, but then you remember H G Wells and Aldous Huxley and Ray Bradbury, and realise there's no excuse for allowances.
