One of the stories in Uncle Bones is the best sf story I have ever read: The
Magi.  For sheer emotional impact, the visualizations, the scenes from that
story are burned into my consciousness like a brand on a steer's flesh.  For
those who decide to read Uncle Bones, do save that as a main course for
last.  The thudding impact of the punchline, the inescapable logic,
everything in that story is a masterpiece.  Excellent work, Dr. Broderick!
