How can you not love this collection from the masters!

I got this on the Nook about a month ago for $0.99 I think. Well worth it. I had forgotten how much of the good classic science fiction of the twentieth century revolves around the red planet. Mars and Martian fiction are staples of scifi. If you like science fiction this would be more than worth your time since it's stories from man of the masters in the field. I really liked the Expediter, maybe my favorite one in the collection.

This is the best science fiction collection that B & N offers - and I've read a lot of B&N's science fiction collections.

Well worth the time and money (cheap) if you are a fan of old time science fiction. I read every story in two days. The juxtaposition between then and now is fascinating.

Lots of variety.

As an eclectic enjoyer not an expert critic, this is a engaging trip through the 'good old days'.

I enjoyed the stories. I read them remembering what the authors eras and societies were like. Their stories were great for the times.

A .99 cent 25 story collection of long and short sci-fi stories that are as interesting now as then. The one that was the strangest to understand was Jubilee with the survival of the Roman Empire into the 21st century (Julius Caesar didn't die); and the last story was one page and verrrry depressing. Very entertaining collection, though.
