THE BIG BOOK OF SCIENCE FICTION

Another big bonanza in that brave new world of science fiction, this collection is more contemporary in its inclusions than August Derleth's recently published Beyond Time And Spare (Pellegrini & Cudahy), has only two classics among the 33 stories here, one by Jules Verne and the Karel Capek play RUR A relatively few of the names are recognizable, among them Waldamar Kaempffert, Fredric Brown, Ray Bradbury, Lewis Padgett, Murray Leinster and Fletcher Pratt. Together they explore through some 700 odd pages the wonderful and the monstrous, engage in many dimensional dangers and adventures, display the imagination and ingenuity which knows no confines. For an afficionado audience, this is good value.
