    One thought on “Isaac Asimov Presents The Great SF Stories 3: 1941

    1. Peter on said:

      A cynic once said something like "The Golden Age of science fiction is about sixteen."But they're wrong. 1941 was the heart of the Golden Age of science fiction. And this book is the proof.If you've read a fair selection of classic SF, some of these stories will doubtless be familiar to you. Others probably won't be. In any case, these are some of the all-time classics of the genre. Each story is introduced by Isaac Asimov, and he provides some interesting (and tantalizing) commentary. I can't h [...]

      This third volume presents the best of 1941 as selected by Asimov and Greenberg, excepting stories by Heinlein for which they were unable to secure reprint rights. Included are classics by Asimov himself, Sturgeon's "Microcosmic God" and "Shottle Bop," and a nice pair by Eric Frank Russell, one of them under a pseudonym. My favorites are forgotten classics by Kuttner & Moore, Kornbluth, and Boucher's "Snulbug." Asimov's introductory essays are as delightful as always.

    3. Nathanielk on said:

      This was a great series, where Asimov picked out the best/his favorite SF stories from 1939 into the early 1960's. I remember that 1941 and 1942 in particular were excellent years.

    4. TrumanCoyote on said:

      [FIRST READING: * * * * *]First off, it was a very large gaffe indeed that they were unable to include any of the Heinlein stories. And I have no idea what that Robert Arthur story is doing here (or even how it got published in the first place)--good grief, what a corny piece of crap. But "Shottle Bop" was a lot of fun--as was "Microcosmic God" (the strange thing about "Shottle" is that, though I remember having read it, I remembered hardly a thing about the plot--just him being in that shop, wh [...]

      Edited by Isaac Asimov, stories by various authors, some are a bit dated but a great collection (even though the Heinlein stories were not actually included), part of a series of 25 from 1939 to 1963

      Inasmuch as I am a born-again SF fan, it is only right, I think, to look backward as well as forward to find new material to read. You could hardly do better than looking toward a couple of old masters, Isaac Asimov and Martin Greenburg, for a collection of tales from the Golden Age. It must have been a mammoth project, 25 years of the best stories. I found this in a used book store somewhere, and figured it would be good reading. I tend to enjoy the older stories better than today's fare for so [...]

      This volume contains several legendary stories. Among them are: Shottle Bop, by Theodore Sturgeon; Microcosmic God, also by Sturgeon; and Nightfall, by Asimov. All three stories deserve the fame they have garnered, and have been anthologized again and again. It's tough to pick a favorite, but my favorite story here is probably "Adam and No Eve," by Alfred Bester. It's at least as good as "Nightfall," in my estimation. And perhaps it seems a bit better because I had never read it before. That gav [...]

      Otra recopilación sabiamente seleccionada por Isaac ASIMOV y Martin H. GREENBERG, donde aparecen varios de los nombres más reconocidos de la ciencia ficción. Relatos cándidos, de una ingenuidad encantadora, de repente atinadamente profética, o al menos, no tan desencaminados. Los títulos incluidos en esta selección son:‘Ratones mecánicos’ de Maurice A. HUGI‘El cohete de 1955’ de C. M. KORNBLUTH‘Dios microcósmico' de Theodore STURGEON‘Jay Score’ de Eric Frank RUSSELL‘Univ [...]

      Terzo volume coi migliori racconti di fantascienza classica raccolti da Isaac Asimov.Se il libro dedicato al 1939 aveva il pregio di essere il primo e di raccogliere i racconti che hanno "aperto un'era" e se il volume del 1940 aveva il sapore di un qualcosa di transizione, questa nuova/vecchia raccolta rappresenta la dimostrazione di quanto quegli anni abbiano rappresentato il seme da cui tutto si è sviluppato.Idee incredibilmente attuali nonostante risalgano a quasi settant'anni fa, stili legg [...]

      Volume curato da Asimov e dedicato all'anno 1941, che fu uno dei più difficili e tragici della nostra storia. Il maresciallo Rommel condusse le sue truppe dall'Italia all'Africa; la corazzata tascabile tedesca Bismarck fu affondata dalla Marina britannica; la Germania invase l'Unione Sovietica; Churchill e Roosevelt firmarono la "Carta Atlantica"; aerei giapponesi attaccarono Pearl Harbour e gli Stati uniti dichiararono guerra al Giapppone. Il 1941 è considerato una delle annate più significa [...]
