The Phoenix Pick Anthology of Classic Science Fiction Stories is a collection of stories taken from across the 19th century and into the early 20th that showcases many of the genre’s early attempts. “Science Fiction” of this period is rich with new ideas that reflect both the concerns and the imagination of the society and writers of its time.
Each of the stories included in this volume has stood the test of time and many of the themes reflected by these authors are still relevant to us today.
