The Best of John W. CampbellBook - 1976
THE VISIONS OF JOHN W. CAMPBELL Here are the finest stories by the man who almost single-handedly created modern science fiction--the writer who taught a generation to dream...and to write of all possible futures. TWILIGHT He was a mere hitchhiker now, but he had once seen the far, far future...and had returned to mourn what he had seen! THE MACHINE The machine was ultimately benevolent...so benevolent that it gave mankind the ultimate but most unwanted gift! FORGETFULNESS They were like children in the museum of Earth's glorious past...children who had forgotten so much, but whose powers were those of gods! And the classic that was to become the movie THE THING: WHO GOES THERE? The Thing was the most dreadful threat men had ever faced...a creature that could be any one--or all--of them! And many more!
