Three interconnected stories —PIRACY PREFERRED, SOLARITE, and THE BLACK STAR PASSES—from the pages of AMAZING STORIES, circa 1930. "These are early stories of the early days of Science Fiction. . . While these stories do not have the finesse of later work—they have the bounding enthusiasm of a young field. . . Science Fiction has a very real function for the young, it presents varying ideas of what the world in which he will live his adult life will be interested in. . . I have a hunch that the history books are a poor way—of planning a life today, and that Science Fiction comes a lot closer. . . These early Science Fiction tales explored the Universe; they were probings, speculations, as to WHERE we could go,. WHAT we could do. They had a sweep, and reach, and exuberance that belonged. They WERE fun too . . . !" From the introduction of the book by the author. Copy #405 of 500 with the special SIGNED, NUMBERED limitation plate. An unusually fine copy in d.j! #6JS.
