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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
