Hard one to rate. There are some stories in here that are pretty good, but the entire collection will live in my memory as a showcase of Wells' racist and eugenics-friendly opinions. Yes, this is partly a product of his time, but these weren't universally accepted opinions, even then. It made far too many of the stories an unpleasant read. It has the benefit of being short, though, and the title story is a fairly good read. But otherwise, I just can't recommend it.
