The Best of C. M. Kornbluth

Ballantine's Classic Library of Science Fiction: Book 7

C. M. Kornbluth

He startled the SF world with his innovative stories and brilliant new ideas...he was a leading proponent of the genre's second golden age...he mingled hard-edged science fiction with delicate webs of fantasy for a blend of unequaled speculative writing....

His name was Cyril M. Kornbluth, and for a short span of time in the late 1940s and 1950s his star shone as bright as a super nova...then winked out due to an untimely death. Today his stories are as fresh and exciting as when they were first written, and this handsome 19-story edition is ample testimony to his creative imagination.
