Title: ... story but want to make what I hope is useful observation about the imprint itself
Content: No additional comments on the story but want to make what I hope is useful observation about the imprint itself. The print in this series is very poor and actually resembles a rather poor photocopy. This is irritating and detracts from the reading experience. I read 'Grass' a week ago and noticed this but thought it was just a bad copy and went ahead to purchase this title along with a couple of others. The printing is the same substandard throughout. Unfortunately it will deter me from purchasing other titles in the series.

Title: Science fiction gold.
Content: So good that I did not want it to end. The author had a way with words and excellent imagination.

Title: A dark heart to a witty fantasy
Content: Cordwiainer Smith was writing witty, imaginative sf long before Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett et al cheapened the idea. At the heart of Cordwainer Smith's future history lies the Instrumentality of Mankind; a benovolent force able to see beyond the considerations of easy liberalism. I think that the authors experience of the Far East and Pentagon subterfuge informs his work as he often attempts to explain the motivation of rulers, spies and mystics This book has many faults, being whimsical, episodic and leaving much unexplained. But it still constitutes a major imaginative achievement unlike any other in sf or fantasy.

Title: Strewth, It's Stroon
Content: On a planet-sized Australia -where, with recent-events poignancy, Queen Elizabeth still rules in-absentia, and is expected back at any time- deliberately primitivised by galactic standards, a young man stands ready to inherit a huge land-holding complete with truly gigantic herd of sick sheep that produce stroon - the most in-demand substance in existence because it imbues immortality. But, due to the designs of a vitriolic old school friend, he must flee his homeworld to Mars, and, ultimately, Earth... which he has somehow managed to buy in its near-entirety. Thus ensues a kind of Stranger In A Strange Land, without the misogyny. Like Smith's Rediscovery of Man short stories (of which Norstrilia could be considered a sort of condensed version - certainly it is in the same universe), and as might be inferred from the above, silliness and a sort of over-arching jollity are very much in evidence here... as well as a love of life and living, an almost breathless inventiveness, and a desire to upend -if not lampoon- every rule of Space Opera - again, just like the shorts. It's been around for a good few decades now, but it's one of those novels so unique it will probably always stand well. Thoroughly enjoyed and thoroughly recommended.
