Synopsis

The stories of Mary Shelley, H. G. Wells, and Jules Verne paved the way for the fantastic science fiction literature that we all enjoy today. However, full appreciation of these contemporary works is impossible without an understanding of their literary roots. Classic Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories is a wonderful collection, comprising excerpts and short stories from some of the most beloved writers of all time. While many readers have only a cursory knowledge of these works, having either heard about them or skimmed through them, they will now be able to have this entire collection in the palm of their hands.

Included in this comprehensive collection are famous writers spanning multiple centuries, including:

• Edgar Allan Poe
• H. G. Wells
• Mark Twain
• Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
• Jules Verne
• Jack London
• Mary Shelley
• And many more

Classic Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories offers not only a front-row seat to the creation of the famous science fiction and fantasy genres, but also insight on where the great sci-fi minds of today got their inspiration. With the help of Stephen Brennan, this collection is one that all fans of George A. Romero, Max Brooks, and Stephen King should have on their bookshelves.

Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller, a national bestseller, or a Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality books from a diverse group of authors.
