The second half of a collection of old SF (from the 1950s and earlier). I found most of it pretty dull and some of it just plain bad. But as with the first volume there are items here by many of the grand masters of SF, so some may like it.

Must really depend on your taste in SF, as I found the included stories to be the cream of the classic era of SF (pre 1969 in this case). With stories ranging from Arthur C. Clarke's "The Other Side of the Sky" to Robert A. Heinlein's "The Man Who Sold the Moon" to Alfred Bester's timeless "The Stars My Destination", if you *like* classic SF, this entire volume (and the companion volume I) will be just right.
