HASH(0x937d9324) étoiles sur 5 EXCELLENT! HISTORIC! IMPORTANT! 24 juillet 2014
Par steve davidson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A beautifully rendered new edition of a classic issue of the world's first science fiction magazine, with seven seminal SF tales representing not only an outline of the history of the magazine, but of the science fiction genre itself.

HASH(0x937d9378) étoiles sur 5 AMAZING STORIES -- less than Amazing presentation 3 février 2015
Par W. B. Glass - Publié sur Amazon.com

I still have my bought-off-the-newsstand copy of this issue, and am happy now to have a convenient Kindle copy. I would give it a five-star rating did this e-book not have a few minor flaws -- and one huge glaring omission. Flaws as minor as stating the e-book as copyrighted in 1014, or mis-attributing the artwork to the R. F. Starzl story to Mackay and not to Paul. The carelessness carries over to the new Introduction, which prefers hype to information. (Particularly leaving out the for-quite-some-time-no-longer-secret fact that "John Carter and the Giant of Mars" was more likely written by son John Coleman Burroughs than father Edgar Rice Burroughs.)

The glaring omission -- the thing I particularly hoped that this e-book would include -- is made more painful by what is in the e-book that was not in the original magazine. Its Editors -- Steve Davidson and Jean Marie Stine -- make a big deal about including a gallery of the covers from the magazines in which this anthology's stories originally appeared. They have the front cover Frank R. Paul did for this 35th Anniversary issue of AMAZING STORIES. They most carelessly and blatantly omit to include Paul's magnificent back cover painting -- where, on a misty, swampy, red-sunned jungle planet, a line of fish-tailed elephants unload passengers from a water-docked spaceship while, in front of a city of rounded stone towers, a crowd of barely-seen aliens wait at the water's edge to great the human visitors. Historically, the last art painted for AMAZING STORIES by its original and founding artist -- and it's left out!

For minor carelessness, and one major lack of care, only four stars.

HASH(0x937d9b7c) étoiles sur 5 A Less Than Stellar Anniversary Issue 31 octobre 2015

_Amazing Stories: Giant 35th Anniversary Issue_ (2014), ed. Steve Davidson and Jean Marie Stine is a reproduction in book form of the April, 1961 anniversary issue of _Amazing Stories_ complete with Frank R. Paul covers and introductory material by Norman Lobsenz, Cele Goldsmith, and Hugo Gernsback. You might want to have this book handy, simply because it is more sturdy than the first edition of the original magazine itself.

Now, when anniversary issues of _Galaxy_ or _Fantasy and Science Fiction_ or _Astounding_ were prepared, the usual practice was for editors to assemble a large number of _new_ stories by big name writers for an All-Star issue. _Amazing_ assembled an all _reprint_ issue of stories from its own pages. Did readers scorn these cheapjack practices? They did not. They raved about the anniversary issue and praised the stories from "the good old days" of _Amazing_.

There were seven stories in all-- two novellas and five short stories. The novellas (along with their original publication dates) are: Philip Francis Nowlan's first Buck Rogers story, "Armageddon-- 2419 A.D." ( _Amazing_, 1928) and Edgar Rice Burroughs' penultimate Barsoom story, "John Carter and the Giant of Mars" (_Amazing_, 1941). The short stories are: Ray Bradbury's "I, Rocket" (_Amazing_, 1944), Edmond Hamilton's "Devolution" (_Amazing_, 1936), R.F. Starzl's "Out of the Sub-Universe" (_Amazing Stories Quarterly_, 1928), Eando Binder's "I, Robot" (_Amazing_, 1939) and David H. Keller's "The Flying Fool" (_Amazing, 1929 ).

Let us start with the novellas. Both have been reprinted in book form since 1961, so both stories can be said to have a track record of sorts.* But their appearance in the April issue of _Amazing was the first time that either tale had been reprinted. So there was some justification for reprinting these novellas at that time.

Now, Philip Francis Nowlan was the sort "scientifiction" writer that Hugo Gernsback admired back in the twenties-- the sort of writer who was likely to shape young Americans into technophiles of the future. Edgar Rice Burroughs was a writer that Gernsback tolerated for his dash and popularity, though the amount of his scientific knowledge could be put on the head of a pin. It didn't really matter. Most readers instinctively knew what Gernsback did not: Burroughs was hands down the better storyteller than Nowlan.

Except with these tales. "John Carter and the Giant of Mars" is one of the last and least of his Barsoom stories. It has none of the color and occasional dream-dazzle of some of the early Martian tales. Instead, it has an incredibly silly plot and a villain named Pew Mogel who makes bombastic speeches ("You see now Pew Mogel's mighty army... with which he will conquer Helium and all Barsoom") but whose body parts keep falling off. It reads like a bad Saturday afternoon movie serial.

But there is a certain no-nonsense solidity about the first Buck Rogers story that causes it to hold up quite well, even by fairly modern standards. "Amageddon-- 2419 A.D.." is essentially a futuristic war story set in an America of the 25th century. Anthony Rogers of the 20th century is accidentally placed in suspended animation, wakes up in a future world, and joins forces with American rebels fighting the Imperialistic Han Overlords who rule the country.

The characters are all drawn well enough to suit the purposes of an adventure tale. The action and battle sequences are all well-done. And Nowlan fills in the details the details of his future America-- the dress, customs, weapons, inventions, and languge-- in a detailed and entertaining way. Modern readers may be a bit put off by the Yellow Peril elements of the plot, but this was a common plot device of the pulps in the twenties and thirties.

As for the short stories, the best written (though not the best known) tale is the Keller. It is about an impractical inventor who dreams of flying and longs to invent a kind of antigravity device-- and of his practical, down-to-earth wife. Unlike many Keller yarns, it is funny. Keler was one of those writers who were old fashioned-- his roots were always in the twenties and the thirties-- but consistently intelligent and subtle.

The Hamilton and the Binder stories are oft-reprinted and popular tales. They are not without a few virtues, but they are not without their faults as well. "Devolution" is the sort of story that might have been labeled a "thought varient" tale if it had been published in _Astounding_ back in the day. It is a competently told scientific idea story pushed to its limits with a clever twist at the end-- but nothing classic. "I, Robot" is the first of a long-running series of first-person stories told by the robot, Adam Link. The series deserve credit for reversing the "Frankenstein monster" horroor formula tales. But "I, Robot" is creaky in style and overly sentimental.

R.F. Starzl was a competent but minor writer of the twenties and thirties. Ray Bradbury is a much more important name. But their stories here are early and minor pieces, and the Bradbury must be countrd as one of his very worst tales. The Starzl is a reworking of the Ray Cummings Man in the Golden Atom theme, slightly redeemed by a real tragic twis at the end. The Bradbury is a space adventure told from the point-of-view of a spaceship. Bradbury's spaceship is not as appealing as Binder's robot.

By my count, there are two "A" stories, two "C's," and three "D's". It's a passable average, but hardly an All-Star battiing average.
