5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best of the classics..., 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, Volume One 1929-1964: The Greatest Science Fiction Stories of All Time Chosen by the Members of the Science Fiction (SF Hall of Fame) (Paperback)
Some of the science is ropey due to age (or perhaps the author not knowing/caring about the facts) but each one of these stories is a gem.

I remember hiding under the covers as a young teen, reading any and all of the SF books from my step-father's collection. Some of the better stories have stuck in my mind for the past twenty years and I've often cursed my younger self for not remembering the titles or authors. I'm happy to say that at least four of those long-forgotten tales are in this collection, but all of them are thought-provoking, idea-inspiring, awe-casting classics.

As you'd expect in an anthology the writing styles vary, but the ideas are powerful and, in all cases, as relevant today as they've ever been.

If you love SF (and don't demand it be 'hard', military or cyberpunk) then buy this collection. No ifs, no buts. Buy it and love it.
