I want to move to Cal-Gary and get my piece of the pie! This was so well-timed. A friend of mine's birthday is tomorrow, and every year when people ask her what she wants, she says, "A pony." She now has such a large collection of pony figures that she won't accept any more. Now I can give her virtual ponies. BONUS. CS

David Drake and Eric Flint put together a sizeable anthology of the sci-fi that got their attention, back when they were kids and new to the stuff. It's called "The World Turned upside Down" and it's only a few months in print. There are a lot of good stories in there. There's another anthology I'm reading called "The New Space Opera," but it's not as even in the strength of the stories in my view. There are definitely some good ones in there. It seems you're looking for anthologies of many authors' work, but for classic sci-fi I would joyously point you to several new re-print anthologies of Christopher Anvil's stories about the Interstellar Patrol. They are of the most clever and funny sci-fi stories I've ever read. The first two volumes are fantastic. Very highly recommended by this completely unknown commenter. :) I've also had some luck finding most of the printed Cordwainer Smith anthologies, including one recently printed. More amazing stuff.
