"Knight is a man of stature and quality, a writer of importance, and a writer whose works will be a new and perhaps jarring experience for many people who were not around when this oeuvre was being built block by block over the decades." - Barry M. Malzberg

When reviewing collections entitled "The Best of ---" , I automatically begin by asking a basic question: "Is this _really_ a selection of the author's best work? Or is it merely a passable collection of tales?" Collections that label themselves as the "best of" a particular author ought to _be_ the best of a particular author-- not a bunch of second string stories.

Damon Knight's _The Best of Damon Knight_ (1976) is a collection of 22 short stories published between 1952 and 1973. They do indeed represent Knight at his best. I can think of several tales that I would like to add, but none that I would like to exclude (not even "Eripmav"). There is an excellent introduction by Barry N. Malzberg. I would like to go on record as agreeing with Malzberg (and disagreeing with just about everybody else) that Knight's novel, _The Other Foot_ (aka, _The Visitor at the Zoo_) was unjustly underrated.

Perhaps Knight's best-known story is "To Serve Man"-- it's the one that was filmed on _The Twilight Zone_. Knight says that he wrote it in a state of depression when his first marriage was breaking up.

THE BEST OF DAMON KNIGHT is one of numerous sci-fi author collections published by Nelson Doubleday in the 1970s. This particular title saw multiple formats and printings over the years, but as far as I can tell, the table of contents remained consistent. An introduction by Barry Malzberg and a quick intro by Knight lead to 22 short stories from the period 1949 - 1973. Each story has a brief foreword by Knight that provides some informative and/or entertaining background. The stories primarily fit into the Twilight Zone mold of nightmare scenarios or twist endings; in fact, "To Serve Man" was adapted into one of the more popular episodes of the classic TV series. Included are:

Not With a Bang
To Serve Man
Cabin Boy
Analogues
Babel II
Special Delivery
Thing of Beauty
Anachron
Extempore
Backward, O Time
Last Word
Man in The Jar
The Enemy
Eripmav
Likely Story
Time Enough
Mary
The Handler
The Big Pat Boom
Semper Fi
Masks
Down There

Knight had a marked talent for blending science fiction and horror, often with a darkly humorous edge. In that regard, his style has a lot in common with that of fellow Twilight Zone veteran Richard Matheson. But he also wrote novels and some highly-regarded literary criticism, in addition to being an editor. He squeezed a lot of output into his 79 years, and while this collection doesn't give a comprehensive overview of his work, it's a good way to brush up on his style. While the set-up of every story is very well-done, some of them either don't progress very well or end with a "thud", so they're not all gems - considering Knight was a very outspoken literary critic, I'd be interested in reading some critiques of HIS work.

The jacket cover of the Nelson Doubleday hardback from 1976 was illustrated by the great Richard Corben. His interpretation of a scene from "To Serve Man" owes quite a bit to the Twilight Zone adaptation. Let's just say that the aliens of Knight's story are nothing like the humanoid giants we saw on television, but they are no less bizarre.
