He had given up writing completely for the middle part of the s, and only came back to short-story writing at the beginning of , after being pestered by Ben Bova and Robert Sheckley to write something for the new science-fiction magazine, Omni. He continued to write Mahjipoor stories throughout this period, and I have to confess that they were never my favorite Silverberg: like the planet, they seem to be of great volume and low density. When Silverberg is on, however, he is really on, and there are some standouts here.
No, not every artist is consistently brilliant — that would be too much to ask — but producing something like Thorns or Dying Inside or The Star of the Gypsies sets up some pretty high expectations. View 1 comment.

Silverberg has also graced Subterranean Press with a lengthy introduction and extensive story notes for each tale. The Subterranean Collected Silverberg will vary greatly from the UK trade paperback series published in the s. Due to the publisher's desire to limit the series to six volumes, many stories and, especially, novellas, could not be included.
The Subterranean Collected Silverberg will be the definitive set. Trade: fully cloth bound edition and sold out at the publisher Limited to signed numbered hardcover copies, bound in leather and cloth and sold out pre-publication. This story, "To See the Invisible Man," written in June of , marks the beginning of my real career as a science-fiction writer, I think. The stories collected in To Be Continued, the first of this series of volumes, are respectable professional work, some better than others but all of them at least minimally acceptable--but most of them could have been written by just about anyone.
Aside from a few particularly ambitious items, they were designed to slip unobtrusively into the magazines of their time, efficiently providing me with regular paychecks. But now, by freeing me from the need to calculate my way around the risk of rejection, Fred Pohl allowed--indeed, required--me to reach as deep into my literary resources as I was capable of doing. I knew that unless I gave him my very best, the wonderful guaranteed-sale deal I had with him would vanish as quickly as it had appeared.
Therefore I would reach deeper and deeper, in the years ahead, until I had moved so far away from my youthful career as a hack writer that latecomers would find it hard to believe that I had been emotionally capable of writing all that junk, let alone willing to do it. In "To See the Invisible Man" the distinctive Silverberg fictional voice is on display for just about the first time.
Limited to signed numbered hardcover copies, bound in leather and cloth and sold out at the pubiisher. But of course I think these stories speak to our times, too, and that most of them will remain valid as we go staggering onward through the brave new world of the twenty-first century.
I am not one of those who believes that all is lost and the end is nigh.
Like William Faulkner, I do think we will somehow endure and prevail against increasingly stiff odds. Why have we small hairy creatures existed at all? I know now. It is so that through our technology we could make possible the return of the great ones. They perished unfairly. Through us, they are resurrected aboard this tiny glove in space. I tremble in the force of the need that pours from them.
Robert Silverberg bibliography - Wikiwand
I will not fail you, I tell the great sauropods before me, and the sauropods send my thoughts reverberating to all the others. I feel their strength, their power, their harmony. I am one with them, and they with me. The Great Race has returned, and I am its priestess. Let the hairy ones tremble!

Aside from it having a woman protagonist who also enacts a bloody revenge against a shitty colleague, this is the most pro-dinosaur of all the stories so far. There has been a conceptual shift in portrait of dinosaurs from out-dated lumbering and stupid monsters who were replaced by smarter, better mammals to creatures that are smart and swift and whose reign over Earth was unjustly curtailed by happenstance. It is there in the second part of A Case of Conscience and even in the various hunters-shooting-dinosaur stories there is a trope of a dinosaur killing over entitled idiots.
Rex mortuus est, vivat T-rex. The Lathe of Heaven is good, though annoyingly unclear in spots. Like Liked by 2 people. Like Liked by 1 person. Lots of psychedelic imagery. There are nuttier examples of people suing and also of films pre-emptively getting the rights to works because of similarities.
