James W Harris on Mike Resnick's "Seven Views of Olduvai Gorge"


Links an online copy, & recommends another of Resnick's online stories.

I'd began reading it may be a year ago. Some download problem had resulted in partial text, & I never went past first 2 or 3 stories (there are supposed to be 7 separate stories, inside a common frame story). I think I liked one of these - a kind of variation on first story in Arthur Clarke's "2001 A Space Odyssey" (very early human ancestors that have now learned hunting), but other didn't work for me (something about slave traders in Africa).
