Rollerball - William Harrison

Apart from the excellent titular story, the rest of this just is not any good. Not even the intro where he whines about falling standards, and even dislikes pinball, of all things. A man who doesn't like pinball perhaps has a fair chance of being really, really dull. This generally shows up in the majority of these stories, apart from the obvious exception.
Pretty much only two of these stories are genre of any description.

So, if you are ever in need of firelighting material, or even better, something to prop under one leg of a pinnie, or MAME cabinet, rip Roller Ball Murder out and use the rest.
