Abstract:

Following its acclaimed three-volume edition of the novels of science fiction master Philip K. Dick, The Library of America now presents a two-volume anthology of nine groundbreaking works from the golden age of the modern science fiction novel, works by turns satiric, adventurous, incisive, and hauntingly lyrical. Long unnoticed or dismissed by the literary establishment, these visionary "outsider" novels grappled in fresh ways with a world in rapid transformation and have gradually been recognized as American classics that opened new imaginative territory in American writing. This first volume contains: Frederik Pohl & C.M. Kornbluth / "The Space Merchants"Theodore Sturgeon / "More Than Human"Leigh Brackett / "The Long Tomorrow"Richard Matheson / "The Shrinking Man."
