    Priceless Classic Science Fiction

    This collection of classic sci-fi novels and short stories hit the spot for me. Granted, some of the tales ring with a childlike curiosity for a future world of conquering planets and traveling where no man has yet to set foot, but all in all the overall plot, story and characters make the collection well worth reading in my opinion. No for a causal sci-fi fan, but definitely a treat for those familiar with the genre.
