Science Fiction: Great Stories of the Golden Age of Science Fiction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These fantastic tales are as fresh and relevant today as they were when they first appeared in the 1940s, the Golden Age of Science Fiction. Theodore Sturgeons “Killdozer!” details the liberation of a mutant energy force with intelligence and a will to destroy. “With Folded Hands,” by Jack Williamson, unfolds a terrifying vision of the future where humanoid mechanisms secure “happiness” for all human beings. In a corrupt empire to come, “The Weapons Shop” of A.E. van Vogts world may be the only source for legal and moral justice. Plus, theres an early “Foundation” tale by Issac Asimov, and many other brilliant examples by C.L. Moore, Lester del Rey, and more.

Synopsis:

Man alienated by the products of his own knowledge — radiation, futuristic weaponry, the aftereffects of war and corruption — and his attempts to retain his humanity lie at the heart of the nine short novels in this outstanding collection of bestselling authors. The tales that make up this collection are as fresh and relevant today as when they first appeared during the 1940's Golden Age of science fiction.
