One book I won't buy

Bookshopping in London yesterday, my eye was caught by the Mammoth Book of Mind-Blowing Science Fiction, edited by Mike Ashley. I have been suspicions of the Mammoth Books of anything sfnal since the publication of George Mann's pisspoor Encyclopedia (I confess I have no idea if the two are related), so didn't bother even looking inside.

It turns out that if I had looked inside, I might have spotted the rather peculiar choice of authors. Luckily others have done so for me, so I don't need to worry any more about whether I might want to buy it.
