Science Fiction Hall of Fame: The Novellas Book 3

By Ben Bova

Rating: 4 stars

Although we now have the Hugo awards for the best SF in a given year, the SF Writers of America decided to choose pre-Hugo novellas that deserved recognition, and this collection, along with books 1 and 2 were the result. This one contains three very different stories: C. M. Kornbluth’s The Marching Morons is a different take on the “frozen man unfrozen in the future and has to adapt” theme; …And Then There Were None by Eric Frank Russell deals with imperialism and planetary colonisation; and finally there is Baby Is Three, by Theodore Sturgeon, which later worked to his famous novel More Than Human tackling Sturgeon’s much-loved themes of evolution and post-humanism. A fine collection.
