If this isn't the absolute best compilation of science fiction stories ever done, I don't know what is!

These were mostly written in the forties and fifties - which some call the "golden age of science fiction" - but they are by no means out-of-date. The original stories on which successful movies were made are here: "I Am the Master" (The Day the Earth Stood Still), and "Who Goes There?" (The Thing; the story is much better than the original movie; the version with Kurt Russell is a much better adaptation). Even those dated by background lose nothing of their creativity and humor.

This is one of the best collections of science fiction short stories, novellas, and novelettes ever published. Originally released in August of 1946 as collection of 35 works from what are now considered the legends of science fiction. It was tied for 4th on the Arkham Survey in 1949 and the top rated book on the Astounding/Analog polls in 1952 and 1956. In 1966, 20 years after it was published, it was still rated as the 20th best science fiction book on the Astounding/Analog pole, and in 1999 it was ranked as the 3rd best SF anthology of all time.

Fourteen of the original 35 stories have also been long remembered by science fiction fans, including such stories as `Requiem' (Robert Heinlein), `Forgetfulness' (Don A. Stuart, a.k.a. John W. Campbell, Jr.), Nerves (Lester Del Rey), Black Destroyer (A.E. van Vogt), Nightfall (Isaac Asimov), and many more. One must be careful in purchasing this book to be sure to get the full collection. The second edition omits five of the stories, and there are several derivative collections that were released using the same or similar names. The original 35 story collection was republished in 1957 under the title `Famous Science Fiction Stories: Adventures in Time and Space.'

A favorite when first it came out, and still a classic which should be more widely known! Excllent. Contains the origin stories of "The Thing" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and many other milestones. If you are a true science-fiction fan, get one.

Some may find a few stories tired and dated, but all are well written and several have been made into classic movies (you'll recognize "The Thing" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still" among them). All-in-all, a thoroughly enjoyable read, recalling the days of pulp magazines that I enjoyed as a kid.
A real classic
