Edited by Elizabeth Ann Hull, Tor, $24.99 (416p) ISBN 9780765326621
First professionally published over 70 years ago, Hugo and Nebula Award winner Frederik Pohl has excelled as a writer, editor, and agent. In the course of this long career, Pohl has influenced many of the premier authors in the field of science fiction; this anthology, edited by Pohl's wife Hull, is an expression of respect and affection from his peers. More than two dozen writers have contributed, from Brian Aldiss to Connie Willis and even (thanks to a reprinted chapter) the late Isaac Asimov. The tributes and stories are as diverse as their authors; Hull's introduction illustrates the warm and loving relationship she shares with Pohl, while grand-daughter Emily Pohl-Weary's contribution demonstrates a laudable familial piety. Though not all of the stories are hits, this anthology conveys Pohl as an iconic figure who is clearly respected and liked by his colleagues, friends, and family. (Sept.)
