A collection of sci fi stories Contents All the Traps of Earth 1960 novelette by Simak Good Night Mr James 1951 novelette by Simak Dro My 1974 Manor edition of this book contains six stories; there must be different editions because I've seen lists with nine entries as the table of contents Mine opens with the titular story a robot tale that I think is just as good as any short robot themed work that Isaac Asimov ever published Good Night Mr James is a uiet and creepy chiller very much different than the bulk of Simak's work It was adapted as a fine episode of the second season of the original Outer Limits Drop Dead is a good first contact story with a very different kind of alien; fans of Robert Silverberg will like this one The Sitters is another good one featuring another brand of alien; it reminded me of some down home nostalgic Ray Bradbury stories Installment Plan is Simak at his best a wry tall tale that once features robots and uirky aliens and how a clever man wins through The last story included is Installment Plan a short tale of interplanetary travel with an O Henry twist It also includes an interesting and amusing counterpoint to Heinlein's The Green Hills of Earth that must have been intentional The title story was published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction edited by Robert P Mills in 1960 but all five of the others originally appeared in Horace Gold's Galaxy Magazine from 1951 1960 I believe many people think of Simak as being primarily for Campbell's Astounding but mush of his better work appeared in other venues primarily Galaxy Simak is always a comfortable read Domicile 1 robot tale that I think is just as good as any short Individual Motivation Within Groups robot themed work that Isaac Asimov ever published Good Night Mr James is a uiet and creepy chiller very much different than the bulk of Simak's work It was adapted as a fine episode of the second season of the original Outer Limits Drop Dead is a good first contact story with a very different kind of alien; fans of Robert Silverberg will like this one The Sitters is another good one featuring another brand of alien; it Why I Am A Jew reminded me of some down home nostalgic Ray Bradbury stories Installment Plan is Simak at his best a wry tall tale that once features Cursed by Darkness (Befallen Tides, robots and uirky aliens and how a clever man wins through The last story included is Installment Plan a short tale of interplanetary travel with an O Henry twist It also includes an interesting and amusing counterpoint to Heinlein's The Green Hills of Earth that must have been intentional The title story was published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction edited by Robert P Mills in 1960 but all five of the others originally appeared in Horace Gold's Galaxy Magazine from 1951 1960 I believe many people think of Simak as being primarily for Campbell's Astounding but mush of his better work appeared in other venues primarily Galaxy Simak is always a comfortable Ship of Magic (Liveship Traders, read
