The marching morons : and other famous science fiction stories by C. M Kornbluth( )

18 editions published between 1951 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published more than 60 years ago, this dark and prescient story of a future devolved to idiocy remains one of the most frightening visions to have emerged from the science fiction of that decade. Envisioning a future United States overwhelmed by a citizenry of low IQ (a consequence of the overbreeding of the stupid) Kornbluth was in fact writing of an observed present. The steady, inexorable descent of human intelligence obsessed Kornbluth, was one of his major themes and reached its truest statement in this novelette. The secret masters of Kornbluth's future are a small population of the intelligent who in subterranean fashion run the country but the "marching morons" overwhelm them and they summon a cynical entrepreneur from the past to help them deal with the dilemma. Weak on technology (a time machine is employed scoop the entrepreneur into their present) the novelette is deadly accurate in its portrait of a society sunk in stupid television, ornate, worthless automobiles and catchphrases which substitute for thought. The denouement is absolutely uncompromising and its utter bleakness is refractory not of a speculative future (which it may well be) but a present which Kornbluth found omnipresent and unbearable. In terms of social statement and extrapolation THE MARCHING MORONS stands with Orwell's 1984 or Forster's THE MACHINE STOPS as shattering anatomization of an inevitable future
Takeoff by C. M Kornbluth( Book )

10 editions published between 1952 and 1958 in 3 languages and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La fantasía científica de nuestro tiempo (fantaciencia), se apoya en datos científicos bien fundamentados y concretos que constituyen el bastidor sobre el que la imaginación del novelista ha tejido la rica trama de su fantasía. Agrega a la emoción propia de la literatura de aventuras, esa pizca de verosimilitud que enciende nuestros sueños: "puede ser cierto... llegará a ser cierto... quizás yo mismo llegue a verlo..." La tierra de los continentes inexplorados, de las míticas hazañas, ya no se encuentran en nuestro planeta ni en nuestra edad. Los modernos jasones que hoy buscan el vellocino de oro, dirigen sus miradas al espacio inmenso y los planetas lejanos. PARTIDA marca el comienzo de la materialización de esos sueños. Es, a un mismo tiempo, la historia llena de emociones, suspenso y peripecias de la partida del primer cohete interplanetario y el testimonio del origen de una nueva edad. El punto de partida de una nueva cronología. C.M. Kornbluth, uno de los más destacados valores de este género literario, nos da, con esta obra, una hermosa muestra de su viva imaginación y sus relevantes dotes de escritor
