Synopsis

The second edition of The Phoenix Pick Anthology of Classic Science Fiction is a collection of speculative fiction from across the nineteenth century, and into the early twentieth, that showcases many of the genre's earliest achievements. Each of the stories included in this volume has stood the test of time, many of the themes reflected by their authors still relevant to us today. They will move you, they will make you think, but better still, these words from the past will fill you with a sense of wonder for the future.
