From Locus:

The Top of the Volcano may be the single most useful Ellison collection to date, for a couple of reasons. One is that by confining the selection to stories that actually won awards, it represents the fiction for which Ellison has been honored by the community over the years… Another is that it offers a clear portrait of the fiction rather than the man, which has always been a difficult distinction for many readers…”

From The Chicago Tribune:

“This may be the most useful book we have for those who want to rediscover Ellison, or for those encountering him for the first time and who want to know what all the fuss was about.”
