Introduction by the Good Doctor. ; 6" - 7" Tall; 296 pages;

" Isaac Asimov's new anthology proves that the possibilities of even so limited a form as the short short story are unlimited when coupled with the thematic rocket fuel of fantasy and science fiction. The energies of the genre have here come to the rescue of a form of storytellng which isn't seen much these days . . . Here, then, are 100 examples of the miniaturist's art, a century batch of ticklers, teasers, and 'stingers' from accomplished masters of a laconic form. If the twists and turns and surprises are often more ingenious than gimmicky, it is because O. Henry has been set whirling in a brave new world of space capsules and cosmic dimensions . .. An ideal book. " - Los Angeles Times

"This book gives a complete survey of the educational and legal backgrounds, political associations, and the judicial philosophy of the eighty-eight men who have worn United States Supreme Court robes since President Washington made the first appointments to the Court in 1789.
" Further, it includes the background, facts, lower court decisions, and Supreme Court decisions in many cases that are outstanding in American legal history or have set precedents. The repercussions from some of the decisions (e. G.. , the Dred Scott case) have set in motion events that have virtually changed the thinking habits of the nation.
" In addition to biographical details about the 'Honorable Eighty-eight' (now ninety, as two other appointments have been made since the book was completed) , the author has furnished background material concerning the state of the nation during each of the four periods into which he has divided the book.
"There is a full list of all the Justices of the Court, with the length of term of each, and a bibliography.
" Written primarily for laymen, the book contains a fund of information that teachers and students of American history, government, and constitutional law should find of immense interest and value. " ; Signed by Author
