Fifty Years of the Best Science Fiction from Analog - Stanley Schmidt,  Isaac Asimov,  Mark Clifton,  Chad Oliver,  Poul Anderson,  James H. Schmitz,  Gordon R. Dickson,  Ben Bova,  Vonda N. McIntyre,  Ted Reynolds,  Stanley G. Weinbaum,  L. Sprague de Camp,  George O. Smith,  Robert A. Heinlein,  A.E. van Vogt,  Fredric B Two stars except for Ted Reynold's contribution "Can These Bones Live," which deserves 5+ stars (to be honest, I can't even remember the other stories in this collection).

It's far and away one of the best short stories I have ever read; I cannot recommend it enough.
