Title: Consider Her Ways and Others

This is a collection of Wyndham’s short stories, and there are pros and cons to that. I find that Wyndham is one of those authors who tends to be better when he’s working with a full novel, because that gives him more room to develop his ideas and to play around with them, but he’s also a pretty good ideas man.
The stories here ranged in quality from okay to good, but I didn’t come across anything that I thought was particularly great. Still, Wyndham is a master of the craft and always does a heck of a fine job when he’s telling a story, and that’s definitely true here, too. The stories here were well-written and even though I had a pretty old copy, they oozed with life and bled out of the pages.
I don’t know if I’d recommend it to a general reader though, just because there are so many other awesome Wyndham books for you to get to. But for completionists, sure.
