Science fiction (abbreviated SF or sci-fi with varying punctuation and case) is a broad genre of fiction that often involves sociological and technical speculations based on current or future science or technology. This is a reader-selected collection of short stories, originally published between 1960 and 1963, that entered the US public domain when their copyright was not renewed. Summary by Cori Samuel, with Wikipedia input.

Note: This collection originally included a tenth story, The Burning Bridge by Poul Anderson. That recording was removed in November 2011 because of a copyright claim. (2 hr 18 min)

this person talking of euro entries blah blah blah ! ur a fool ! want to learn about dark people being oppressedthrough the ages ?!? research the persian/ottoman empire middle astern historyof African slaves/Eunice. see how the African peoplewere treated by the Islamicworld. don't just swallowwhateveru see & hear. considerthe source ! this rant about a Whitehouse club of blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah ! & I really hope that this person gets their head out of their ass ! scify more so than most genres is eye opening to say the least. not being good with words I just hope who ever u are , u take a deep breath & think on what events likely scared u in ur past & allow some for of healing to begin. good stories can be helpful in healing. if u are rubbed some way or another by a story, it's likely due to it touching a nerve. think on it.
