Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Golden Age of Science Fiction, from the early 1940s through the 1950s, saw an explosion of talent in SF writing, including authors such as Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, and Arthur C. Clarke. Their writing helped science fiction gain wide public attention, and left a lasting impression upon society. The same writers formed the mold for the next three decades of science fiction, and much of their writing remains as fresh today as it was then.

Synopsis:

Ten of the finest short science fiction novels of the 1940s are collected in this outsized volume.

Greenberg has been called the king of anthologists, with more than one thousand anthologies. Charles G. Waugh is a leading authority on science fiction and fantasy.
