Summary

These fantastic tales are as fresh and relevant today as they were when they first appeared in the 1940s, the Golden Age of Science Fiction. Theodore Sturgeon's "Killdozer!" details the liberation of a mutant energy force with intelligence and a will to destroy. "With Folded Hands," by Jack Williamson, unfolds a terrifying vision of the future where humanoid mechanisms secure "happiness" for all human beings. In a corrupt empire to come, "The Weapons Shop" of A.E. van Vogt's world may be the only source for legal and moral justice. Plus, there's an early "Foundation" tale by Issac Asimov, and many other brilliant examples by C.L. Moore, Lester del Rey, and more.
