Selected by a vote of the membership of the Science Fiction Writers of America SFWA these reprints represent the best most important and most influential stories and authors in the field The contributors are a Who s Who of classic SF with every Golden Age giant included Isaac Asimov Ray Bradbury Arthur C Clarke John W Campbell Robert A Heinlein Fritz Leiber Cordwainer Smith Theodore

movie adaptation i Charly i p The collection has some minor but frustrating flaws There are no contributor biographies which is bad enough when the author is a giant but it s especially sad for contributors who have become unjustly obscure Each story s original publication date is in small print at the bottom of the first page And neither this fine print nor the copyright page identifies the magazines in which the stories first appeared p p Prefaced by editor Robert Silverberg s introduction which describes SFWA and details the selection process i The Science Fiction Hall of Fame Volume
