Short Science Fiction Collection Vol. 017

Official Blurb

Science fiction (abbreviated SF or sci-fi with varying punctuation and case) is a broad genre of fiction that often involves sociological and technical speculations based on current or future science or technology. This is a reader-selected collection of short stories, first published between 1951 and 1962, that entered the US public domain when their copyright was not renewed.

My Review

Another great collection from Librivox. Ten short stories from various authors. Some of them being very very big names in the Sci fi genre. We've got E.E. Doc Smith Harry Harrison and Phillip K. Dick, among others.

I rated 6 of the stories as good and 3 more as good, meaning I only disliked 1!

If you like a variety of short stories these collections are great, especially since they are now including these more modern authors and therefore more modern stories.

As to my favourite, well it's truely hard to say. But I do reccomend "The Vortex Blaster" and "Postmark Ganymede" as a couple of goodies.

The readers are a good bunch.
