Despite his death at a tragically young age, Cyril M. Kornbluth was one of the greats from the 'golden age' of science fiction. One of the members of the 'Futurians' fan club of the 1930s (a group that counted Frederick Pohl, Isaac Asimov, and Damon Knight among its members), he went on to co-author the classic novel The Space Merchants (S.F. Masterworks) and write a number of short stories that are classics of the genre. These stories have been brought together in this collection, from his earliest work to such classics as 'The Mindworm' and 'The Marching Morons' (a sure influence on Mike Judge's more gentle take on a similar premise in Idiocracy [DVD] [2006]). This is a must-have collection for fans of golden age science fiction, one that captures the wonder of the works of the era.

C M Kornbluth stories are not dark and sour… they are black as midnight and bitter as acid. They are also unique, compact, and intensely readable. Publishing from the age of 15, Kornbluth would live only 20 years more, before a heart attack resulting from the stresses of war took him. He would write 16 novels (half in collaboration) in his last 8 years, and produce 76 short stories during his career, 20 being collaborations. This book contains the 56 solo short stories, and it is an absolutely unmissable collection for anyone who likes science fiction.. or just good stories. Kornbluth won no awards in his lifetime, although Frederik Pohl later expanded a Kornbluth manuscript, and won an award for the collaboration; but he was, and he remains, a classic author, whose death – in the same year that took another master, Henry Kuttner, only weeks before- was a tragedy that still reverberates down the years.
It is not possible to pick a best story, or even a favourite one; and you will have to investigate further to know why the M in his name doesn’t actually exist, or why he imprisoned one of his own pseudonyms in an asylum. Beyond this book, are the collaborations with Judy Merril and Frederik Pohl and half-a-dozen others, and the solo novels inside and outside of SF.. but first, this book.. buy it, read it, treasure it, mourn our loss.

I am looking for the stories written by Kornbluth and Moore. Although this did not contain them, I was very pleased to read all these, some new, some old favourites
