Publisher Comments:

The stories of Mary Shelley, H. G. Wells, and Jules Verne paved the way for the fantastic science fiction literature that we all enjoy today. However, full appreciation of these contemporary works is impossible without an understanding of their literary roots. Classic Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories is a wonderful collection, comprising excerpts and short stories from some of the most beloved writers of all time. While many readers have only a cursory knowledge of these works, having either heard about them or skimmed through them, they will now be able to have this entire collection in the palm of their hands.

Included in this comprehensive collection are famous writers spanning multiple centuries, including:

• Edgar Allan Poe

• H. G. Wells

• Mark Twain

• Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

• Jules Verne

• Jack London

• Mary Shelley

• And many more

Classic Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories offers not only a front-row seat to the creation of the famous science fiction and fantasy genres, but also insight on where the great sci-fi minds of today got their inspiration. With the help of Stephen Brennan, this collection is one that all fans of George A. Romero, Max Brooks, and Stephen King should have on their bookshelves.

About the Author

Stephen Brennan has coauthored several books, and has edited such collection as The Best Ghost Stories Ever Told and The Best War Stories Ever Told, amongst others. He resides in New York City.
