Overview

It's always exciting when I discover a new batch of classic, hardboiled sci-fi shorts and novellas from the golden age of the genre.
I titled this 220-page compilation as "Extreme Hardboiled" because that's exactly what it is. There is no time for niceties, fluff or sentimentality in these masterpieces from an era when blood and guts, good detectives and nasty space monsters reigned supreme. The illustrations also capture the golden era and bring it to the inner sanctum of your imagination.

If you are like me, this collection will bring back some great memories and sadly make you realize what is missing in so much of today's sci-fi.

When I was a kid I had to hide the stuff I read from my Mother. Junk! Just Junk! She said. But it is great junk. I still love it! And as I read every once in a while I realize that I remember the story I'm reading from half a century ago! Great Junk! A little out dated, but I should hope so!

Most of these stories hold up well. Enjoyed reading old style SciFi from the '50's and 60's.

If you like science fiction and shows like the "Twilight Zone", then you ought to like this and the price is reasonable.

This compilation is filled to the brim with real, pulp sci-fi. It's not pretty, but it sure is fun and exciting to read. I highly recommend it.
