Adventures in Time and Space

(1946)
(Famous Science-Fiction Stories)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
A collection of thirty-five stories in which the caution of the scientist gives way to the unfettered imagination of the writer. To the authors of these stories such earth-shaking devices as the atom bomb, rockets, robots, time and space machines were everyday occurrences long before the Nazi V-2 or our own Oak Ridge. Indeed, there are some hair-raising off-the-record tales of how the writers of science-fiction anticipated the atomic bomb and how disturbing their stories were to the F.B.I. during the progress of the Manhattan Project in the months before the first atomic bomb was dropped. As a matter of fact, such stories had been appearing in the science-fiction magazines over a period of years and the whole question of atomic fission was a commonplace to their readers. These stories are an exciting and sometimes frightening extension of the test tube of today into the superman's world of tomorrow. This excellent collection includes stories by such outstanding practitioners of an unusual art as Robert A. Heinlein, Anthony Boucher. A. E. Van Vogt, Willy Ley, Lewis Padgett, S. Fowler Wright and others.
