The Best of John W. Campbell

Ballantine's Classic Library of Science Fiction: Book 6

John W. Campbell, Jr.

Note that the contents of this collection are different from the similarly titled collection published in 1973 by Sidgwick & Jackson.

Here are the finest stories by the man who almost single-handedly created modern science fiction--the writer who taught a generation to dream...and to write of all possible futures.

TWILIGHT
He was a mere hitchhiker now, but he had once seen the far, far future... and had returned to mourn what he had seen!

THE MACHINE
The machine was ultimately benevolent...so benevolent that it gave mankind the ultimate but most unwanted gift!

FORGETFULNESS
They were like children in the museum of Earth's glorious past...children who had forgotten so much, but whose powers were those of gods!

And the classic that was to become the movie THE THING: WHO GOES THERE?
The Thing was the most dreadful threat men had ever faced...a creature that could be any one--or all--of them!

And many more!

The Best of C. M. Kornbluth

Ballantine's Classic Library of Science Fiction: Book 7

C. M. Kornbluth

He startled the SF world with his innovative stories and brilliant new ideas...he was a leading proponent of the genre's second golden age...he mingled hard-edged science fiction with delicate webs of fantasy for a blend of unequaled speculative writing....

His name was Cyril M. Kornbluth, and for a short span of time in the late 1940s and 1950s his star shone as bright as a super nova...then winked out due to an untimely death. Today his stories are as fresh and exciting as when they were first written, and this handsome 19-story edition is ample testimony to his creative imagination.

The Best of Philip K. Dick

Ballantine's Classic Library of Science Fiction: Book 8

Philip K. Dick

Philip K. Dick didn't predict the future -- he summoned the desperate bleakness of our present directly from his fevered paranoia. Dick didn't predict the Internet or iPhones or email or 3D printers, but rather he so thoroughly understood human nature that he could already see, even at the advent of the transistor, the way technology would alienate us from each other and from ourselves. He could see us isolated and drifting in our own private realities even before we had plugged in our earbuds. He could see, even in the earliest days of space exploration, how much of our own existence remained unexplored, and how the great black spaces between people were growing even as our universe was shrinking.

Philip K. Dick spent his first three years as a science fiction author writing shorter fiction, and in his lifetime he composed almost 150 short stories, many of which have gone on to be adapted into (slightly watered down) Hollywood blockbusters: The Adjustment Bureau, Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly, Paycheck, and Imposter are just a few of the films that have been adapted from PKD's work.
