Following its acclaimed three-volume edition of the novels of science fiction master Philip K. Dick, The Library of America now presents a two-volume anthology of nine groundbreaking works from the golden age of the modern science fiction novel. Long unnoticed or dismissed by the literary establishment, these `outsider` novels have gradually been recognized as American classics. Here are genre-defining works by such masters as Robert Heinlein, Richard Matheson, James Blish, and Alfred Bester. The themes range from time travel (Fritz Leiber's `The Big Time`) to post-apocalyptic survival (Leigh Brackett's `The Long Tomorrow`), from the prospect of a future dominated by multinational advertising agencies (Pohl and Kornbluth's `The Space Merchants`) to the very nature of human identity in a technological age (Theodore Sturgeon's `More Than Human` and Algis Budrys's `Who?`). The range of styles is equally diverse, by turns satiric, adventurous, incisive, and hauntingly lyrical. Grappling in fresh ways with a world in rapid transformation, these visionary novels opened new imaginative territory in American writing.
