Science Fiction Daw 30th Anniversary

Various. Daw Books, $24.95 (480pp) ISBN 978-0-7564-0064-4

DAW owners/editors Elizabeth R. Wollheim and Sheila E. Gilbert gather together their bullpen's heavy hitters in two celebratory volumes, the DAW 30th Anniversary Science Fiction Anthology (DAW, $24.95 464p ISBN 0-7564-0064-3) and the DAW 30th Anniversary Fantasy Anthology ($24.95 432p -0070-8). With the former boasting 19 stories by the likes of Robert Sheckley, C.J. Cherryh and Kate Elliot, and the latter offering 18 tales by writers such as Michael Shea, Ian Watson and Michelle West, the only misstep in these excellent line-ups is that the DAW grande dames gave both tomes virtually identical introductions.
