A group of scientists. An object buried under the ice. A terrifying fight for survival.
Born in New Jersey in 1910, John W Campbell studied physics at MIT and then Duke University. By the age of 18 he was writing science fiction and was a recognised name in the genre by the time he was 21. He died in 1971.
Every single one of these seven stories is pure science fiction gold, not only standing the test of time after 80 years but simply inspired works of fiction. Anyone really interested in science fiction should read this collection and see how it's written by the very best. -- Anthony Jones * SFBOOKREVIEWS blog *
