The Best of C. M. Kornbluth

By C.M. Kornbluth

Rating: 4 stars

I’ve not read very much of Cyril Kornbluth’s work but this collection won me over. Kornbluth’s writing is humorous, sarcastic and revels in the stupidity of the human species (in one or two stories, the idea that stupid people are outbreeding the intelligentsia are actively explored). Kornbluth collaborated with Fred Pohl extensively in his fairly short life and Pohl’s introductions to the stories show a warmth to his friend and offer some interesting notes on the stories themselves. Definitely worth reading.
