Overview

Before sci-fi got cute and discovered its softer side, it was hardboiled to the core – as were it hardcore readers.

Its masters were weaned on pulp fiction at a time in the second half of the 20th century when man actually began to reach out for the stars.

When I recently discovered some of the lost masterpieces that fill this 298-page, beautifully illustrated compilation produced exclusively for Kindle, once again I was amazed at how good the writing was of these long-forgotten visionaries.
Hardboiled, sci-fi tales like "The Man Who Hated Mars," "The Machine That Saved the World," or "Alien Offer, "brought back the same excitement I first felt as a young man when I stumbled upon my first vintage Sci-Fi pulp story.
In addition to these magnificent gems, this compilation includes the great Robert Silverberg's first novel, "Starman's Quest," which he wrote when he was 19 years old.

I believe you will find this compilation not a walk down lost memories but instead a rediscovery or great things yet to come.

This is a great compilation of vintage sci-fi with many good stories. But, the modest price of this ebook was worth just getting a chance to read a young and upstart Robert Silverberg when he was just starting out. I loved it!
