There have been several anthologies of early science fiction published over the years HG Wells and his contemporaries have been relatively well served by the publishing industry particularly as their works have entered the public domain though the interest in such primitive genre work seems to have abated since the 1970s and this book as well as Castle Books similar Rivals of HG Wells are both long out of print though easy enough to find here and elsewhere without spending a fortune This Sam Moskowitz volume is probably the best single introduction to the period that I ve seen though and I wouldn t hesititate to recommend it to anyone who has read a bit of Wells or Verne and wants to explore furtherThe first 40 pages or so are taken up by a brief history of the popular magazines of the 1890s and 1900s in both England where the rage for the scientific romance really seemed to take root first and in America which was to dominate the field eventually Illustrated general interest magazines like THE STRAND THE IDLER PEARSON S THE METROPOLITAN and THE ARGOSY provided cheap entertainment that could be afforded by even the lower middle classes from whence young HG Wells sprung and which would given him his start as a writer of fiction alongside such still famous names as Arthur Conan Doyle and Jules Verne in translation and of course many others who have not survived in the public consciousness over the past centuryUnlike Moskowitz later seuel Under the Moons of Mars A History and Anthology of The Scientific Romance in the Munsey Magazines 1912 1920 Science Fiction by

Griffith and Robert Barr 26 stories in all each with a brief biographical sketch of the author preceding it All in all a well chosen well researched book that really showcases the breadth of early science fiction as it appeared in the short form Only a few of the stories may be considered classics Hodgson s VOICE IN THE NIGHT is one that might ualify but most are a lot of fun dated or
