Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
It's July, 1939, and you buy the newest issue of Astounding Stories straight from the newsstands. In it you find stories from two never-before-published authors, A.E. van Vogt and Issac Asimov. You don't realize it, but the golden age of science fiction just began.

Lasting only until 1955, the short years of the golden age era exerted a lasting influence upon science fiction. It established the careers of three of the most popular science fiction writers the big three Issac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Robert Heinlein. And it all began with the man who discovered them.

This book is a brief introduction to the genre. It provides the history of science fiction's earliest roots, and shows the culture that influenced the work.

More than an introduction, however, it is also an anthology of the work; not only do you get to read the history behind the work--you actually get to read the work.
