    1. A few years back, Subterranean Press began collecting the short works of Robert Silverberg in a series of collectors' editions. I have pretty much all of Silverberg's works in other collections, but luckily Subterranean also released electronic versions of the books priced at $2.99 a volume. At that price, it was worth it, even if I had all the stories in other volumes. And making the price even more worth it were the book and story introductions by Silverberg, which give a lot of insight into h [...]

Eriti need mis on siin ümbertrükituna "The Feast of St. Dionysos" - nimelisest kogumikus [...]
