Product Description

About the Author

A. E. Van Vogt was one of the giants of the Golden Age of science fiction, when he, with his contemporaries Robert A. Heinlein and Isaac Asimov, completely transformed the genre, leading it to a new level of maturity. His landmark novels "Slan" and "The World of Null-A" were two of the most influential SF novels of the 20th century, and were also two of the first SF novels to appear in hardcover from a major publisher. His ability to write complex wheels-within-wheels plots was often imitated, by writers as different as Philip K. Dick and Keith Laumer, but has never been equaled. In 1996 Van Vogt received the Grand Master Nebula Award for a lifetime body of work from the Science Fiction Writers of America. He also was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame and received a special award from the World Science Fiction Convention. "Booklist" has noted that "Van Vogt created genuinely different aliens, endowed with extraordinary physical and mental powers as well as appetites, and the genre . . . has thrived on them since."

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
For practical purposes, I think it can be said that this book comprises one novel, "Clane of Linn" (420 pages), and two novellas, "The Ezwal" (70 pages) and "Mission to the Stars" (112 pages). Originally, they were eleven separate stories, published in "Astounding Science Fiction" magazine from 1942 to 1950.

"Clane of Linn" is the best part - and the reason why I gave the book five stars. The other two are just OK, but an entertaining read anyway (I would give them two and a half stars).

I had read a couple of good stories by A. E. Van Vogt before, but only after reading this book I realized he was a major science-fiction author.

I would recomend this to Science Fiction fans in general, and to fans of this writer in particular. It is a collection of his books, all of which are good.

This is one of my favourite SF series and is an excellent Kindle interpretation. Asimov executors take note.

It took me a while to realise this was the Wizard of Linn series otherwise I would of purchased sooner.
