    1. Absolutely first-class collection of short stories by Aldiss. My favourite, which I have read any number of times, is "Swastika!", in which a journalist interviews an elderly Adolf Hitler, living in retirement in Belgium under an assumed name. A couple of samples. Here's Hitler reminiscing about the invasion of Czechoslovakia:Beautiful city, Prague! The sun shining, the Wehrmacht in their best uniforms, the tanks rolling, everyone shouting 'Heil -' well, 'Heil Me', let's say, and the pretty Cze [...]


    2. 1982 'Door Slams in Fourth World' The Fourth World is Europe, reduced to that status by Islamic attacks. There is even anthrax. The science fiction writers I've been reading lately come into two distinct groups, ones like Banks who is simply writing a rollicking good tale without being tied to our world in any way and the ones like Dick and Aldiss who are concerned with what will be, their 'what will happen?'s are always tied to a 'why might it?' I guess one could argue this is monkey on a typew [...]

    4. I was brought to this thanks to an essay by Neil Gaiman about one of Aldiss' novels. I was already familiar with him because of "Supertoys Last All Summer Long" (the basis for Stephen Spielberg's A.I which I quite like though I know I'm in the minority), which I personally thought was great on the idea end of things but somewhat lacking in execution. Some of Aldiss' stories suffer from the same problem (particularly, somewhat wooden writing and simplistic characterization), which is a shame beca [...]


    5. Difficult and boring read. I had to push myself to finish it. The main problem is, you don't know what to expect at the beginning of every short story, so there are multiple things that may be consistent with what is written. When reading "Man in his time", I had 3-4 various interpretations of what I was reading on the first page, and the correct one (revealed only later) was not even one of them. Another problem: at times, the usual english grammar/vocabulary is altered to refer to the new engl [...]


    6. Trinta anos da obra do autor britânico são cobertos pela antologia Man in his time: the best science fiction stories of Brian W. Aldiss, que reúne 22 contos escolhidos pelo próprio escritor. A seleção cobre vários temas visitados por Aldiss, da ciência presente ao futuro, distopias, alienígenas e até um toque de humor.A qualidade das tramas é desigual, a começar de Super-toys las all summer long, conto que Stanley Kubrick programou fazer mas foi executado por Steven Spielberg. O film [...]


    7. In honesty, I had not heard of Aldiss before picking up this book. My lovely significant other had brought the book home is it had the short story the 'interesting' A.I. movie was based on (the story Super-toys Last all Summer Long was much better than the film)The other stand out story (the namesake of the piece) Man in His Time, combines humor technology and prophetic caution together into a witty tale.Unfortunately the rest of the stories blur together, some had promise, but interesting plotl [...]


    8. Does alright when there's an actual story to tell. Only two were standouts: "Man In His Time" (though I'm not quite sure I believe in all of it--or that it would work, or that way) and especially "Girl and Robot With Flowers"--very original (though not really science fiction), and a nice message; hard to think somebody with such an otherwise effete and jaded style/outlook could come up with that. The rest (for the most part) is cutesy-wootsy-rootsy-tootsy Joycean wordplay, or artsy-fartsy dated [...]


    9. Very good collection from a very good science fiction writer. As a "best of" it suffers, perhaps, from the desire to include stories ranging across Aldiss's entire career -- some of his early stories are a bit pedestrian, while a few of the later ones are didactic and hectoring -- in the main, this serves as a more than adequate introduction to this important writer's work.


    10. Actually, my 5 star rating is for the short story "man in his time" which is a superb example of the science fiction of inner rather than outer space that I read many years ago. The use of a dislocation in time as a concrete externalisation of the psychology of emotional and social alienation has not been bettered.
