Literature / Isaac Asimov Presents: The Great Science Fiction Stories, Volume 3 (1941)

Go To

First published in 1980 by editors Isaac Asimov and Martin H. Greenberg. This Genre Anthology contains seventeen Science Fiction stories that were first published in 1941, ranging in length from Short Story to Novelette. The introduction describes "the world outside reality" first, marking significant historical events, sports trivia, and literary publications. The "real world" is the science fiction and fantasy pop culture, the birth of what many in the 1970s were calling the Golden Age of Science Fiction.

Five stories by Robert A. Heinlein were selected for inclusion; "—And He Built a Crooked House—", "They", "Universe", "Solution Unsatisfactory", and "By His Bootstraps". However, obtaining legal use within the deadline for publication was not possible, so the editors direct the reader to Past Through Tomorrow, which does contain all five stories (actually the next book apologizes because none of these were actually in the suggested volume).
