Overview

There is an untapped treasure trove of 1950s and early 1960s science fiction that waits to be rediscovered.

It has been my pleasure to slowly lift the veil on an era where story, premise and originally mattered and fears of being politically correct were nonexistent.
Here are 6 vintage sci-fi masterpieces I recently discovered that really matter for their unbelievable future foresight and social commentary. I hope you enjoy the stories and novelette that make up this hardy 172-page collection as much as I did.

    These stories are ageless

    I know these stories were written decades ago, but they are better than some of the best new sci-fi out there. I took a chance on the low price, but it was really a pleasant surprise.
