Science Fiction is speculative literature that generally explores the consequences of ideas which are roughly consistent with nature and scientific method, but are not facts of the author’s contemporary world. The stories often represent philosophical thought experiments presented in entertaining ways. Protagonists typically "think" rather than "shoot" their way out of problems, but the definition is flexible because there are no limits on an author's imagination. The reader-selected stories presented here were written prior to 1962 and became US public domain texts when their copyrights expired. (Summary by Gregg Margarite)

I've read these so far and they are A++ all the way. Fave pa rt of earthworm; the neofuhrer hitler gets it with insecticide, ' ach du lebensraum!' Librivox populi

great listening

(5 Sterne)

including the late Greg Margarite makes this collection all the better. The long length makes for great night listening. good stories. one is repeated by two readers but oh well.
