In January of 1930 a new magazine with a flashy color cover appeared on newsstands, Astounding Stories of Super-Science. Filled with stories of adventure, sometimes with only a tinge of science, this magazine was to host and nurture many science fiction giants like Murray Leinster and Ray Cummings and would help inspire many of the writers of the "Golden Age of Science Fiction". This inaugural issue includes stories by Murray Leinster, Ray Cummings, S. P. Meek, Victor Rousseau and others. (Summary by Alan Winterrowd) (8 hr 10 min)

Good collection of short stories

(4 Sterne)

Each story is a bit different, but they are all good sci-fi, and a good way to spend a day. My favorites were the beetle horde and the invisible death. Least favorite was the stolen mind, which I found annoying. Reading was fine, lots of good regulars did the stories. Enjoy!

A fine collection of tales
