Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Here's the heart of the heart of where those who take American science fiction seriously would want to begin -- the genre's equivalent of Hollywood's classical period, and the books subsequent creators like Thomas Pynchon and Stanley Kubrick used to bend their brains -- as well as a selection of novels as fresh and evocative as any hungry reader could hope to discover."  — – Jonathan Lethem

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. Long unnoticed or dismissed by the literary establishment, these “outsider” novels have gradually been recognized as American classics. Here are genre-defining works by such masters as Robert Heinlein, Richard Matheson, James Blish, and Alfred Bester. The themes range from time travel (Fritz Leiber’s The Big Time) to post-apocalyptic survival (Leigh Brackett’s The Long Tomorrow), from the prospect of a future dominated by multinational advertising agencies (Pohl and Kornbluth’s The Space Merchants) to the very nature of human identity in a technological age (Theodore Sturgeon’s More Than Human and Algis Budrys’s Who?). The range of styles is equally diverse, by turns satiric, adventurous, incisive, and hauntingly lyrical. Grappling in fresh ways with a world in rapid transformation, these visionary novels opened new imaginative territory in American writing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Is it too much too ask? 2 octobre 2012
Par William - Publié sur Amazon.com

Is it too much too ask that Amazon list the nine novels in the collection? Here they are:
*Frederik Pohl and C. M. Kornbluth, The Space Merchants
*Theodore Sturgeon, More Than Human
*Leigh Brackett, The Long Tomorrow
*Richard Matheson, The Shrinking Man
*Robert A. Heinlein, Double Star
*Alfred Bester, The Stars My Destination
*James Blish, A Case of Conscience
*Algis Budrys, Who?
*Fritz Leiber, The Big Time
I had to go to the LOA website to find out.
They're great books and I have other Library of America books that are beautifully made so 5 stars

UPDATE: Amazon responded to this comment by changing the listing to show the titles...Thanks Amazon!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Splendid set 2 octobre 2012
Par Wayne Dynes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
For too long, science fiction has been banished to the margins of American literature. This splendid set goes a long way to repairing this injustice. The selections are varied and representative, the annotation is helpful, and the printing quality is exceptional. The dust jackets and box are works of art in themselves. Surely this set deserves an award as one of the best publications of 2012. Buy the set: when it arrives it will make your day. It certainly did mine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nine Ground-breaking sf Classic Novels 4 février 2016
Par R N Anderson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
From what many consider the beginning of the golden age of sf novel writing, this two volume collection includes nine classic novels, some now difficult to find. The novels, originally published between 1953 and 1958, are surely among the favorites of experienced sf fans and readers, so for younger, less experienced sf readers this collection consists of key sf writers of the post-WWII era. Most of the selected novel titles have been considered ground-breaking, original in a time when sf was emerging from the pulp magazines to find a permanent home the publishing industry. The two book, boxed collection reflects the care taken in publishing works in The Library of America series. Notes and publishing history are sparse but informative. This nine novel set is now a permanent part of my sf library.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Stories 30 avril 2015
Par Me - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Good collection of books included in the collection. It's neat how these stories from the '50s and early '60s still hold up so well today. Many are cautionary tales that foretell much of what we are experiencing in the world today.

Richard Matheson's "Shrinking Man" is in here and if you haven't read it, do. It is a great story and a good deal different than the 1957 Grant Williams movie.

I've purchased Library of America books before and the only complaint I can make about them is that the pages are so thin, the print on the far side shows through and distracts from the reading some.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Days of solid reading pleasure 1 avril 2014
Par Wulfstan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you like classic Science Fiction this is a must get, and it also makes a great gift. It contains Nine classic novels from the greats in the field, all written in the early 1950's. Only one of these was `meh" to me, the rest were great. You will likely find about the same ratio- and 90% "WOWZER!" is a pretty good rate in any collection.
