Overview

This 349-page, illustrated collection of 10, lost sci-fi masterpieces is for hardcore fans like us only.

Here is a listing of the titles and authors:

1. DP by Arthur Dekker Savage
2. The Big Trip Up Yonder by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
3. Novice by James H. Schmitz
4. Oneness by James H. Schmitz
5. Subjectivity by Norman Spinrad
6. The Unthinking Destroyer by Rob Phillips
7. Last Resort by Stephen Bartholomew
8. The Terrible Answer by Arthur G. Hill
9. The Fifth Dimension Tube by Murray Leinster
10. The Romantic Analogue by W. W. Kupeldyckle

The masters who wrote these gems from the 1930s to the 1960s were not politically correct and told their vision of a future world as they saw it -- period.
In this compilation you will find a surprise story by the great Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and others whose great works have been buried in the archives of vintage Sci-Fi.
I hope you carefully read each one of these stories and savor them like the fine, aged, speculative fiction wine they are.

    Never knew Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Wrote Pulp Science Fiction

    Loves all 10 of these vintage sci-fi stories, but particularly like the piece written by Vonnegut. I knew he was a Madison Ave. ad man in his younger years, but I never knew he could write darn good pulp sci-fi. This one story is worth the price of the ebook!

    Some good, some not so good. Give it a try.

    Not exactly "masterpieces"... more of a mixed bag. Still a mostly good mix for SF fans. The ebook navigation was a little frustrating for this one but it all worked.

    Great Anthology of Lesser Known Titles..

    The word "vintage" absolutely fits these mini-stories. Every one of them adds something to the "golden-age" of Science Fiction stories. Stories with fabulous twists and turns and great endings in all of them. A must have collection if you want to say you're a true sci-fi fan.

    A nice collection for sci- fi fans

    A nice collection of 9 short stories and 1 novella. Some quite serious and others good fun. Well worth the read.

    A good review of older sf- goes back as far as the teens and twenties

    Some excellent stories here. The earliest material is a bit tiresome(purple prose not much appreciated anymore), but otherwise quite good and plenty of it. I had some trouble with the paging, so restart your Nook once in a while. It works much better that way.

    A good example of classic science fiction

    I wasn't in love with the short novella #9 but the other stories were satisfying.

    Sample broken

    Sample will not load. I have no confidence that the full version is any better.
    After my unfortunate experience with "Frankenstein, Annotated" I am unwilling to pay money for a book I cannot sample.

    Entertaining for the restless mind

    While some of the plots had the same basic ideas every story had its own meaning and unique characters. Great set of storiesbto just pick up and read through one when bored.

    Must-Read Collection

    If you are or want to be a fan of hardcore Sci-fi then I suggest you read this compilation. It is a sampler of what made pulp science fiction grow and sell during its golden hey day. All the authors and titles are listed and all of them pack a punch. It didn't disappointed me.

    Good, classic, solid sci-fi

    If you didn't live in the golden age of sci-fi and want to enjoy some of its best, buy this ebook! Well, well worth the small price.
