The Secrets of the Future

Future worlds have been favorite settings for science-fiction writers since this branch of writing was in its infancy. Now the impact of the hydrogen bomb, earth satellites and moon-rockets has greatly increased speculation about the tomorrow of mankind.

This book contains a superlative collection of stories dealing with the near and far-distant future of man and the universe. Many of them have previously been unavailable to readers and collectors. Their authors represent most of the finest practitioners of science-fiction writing today.

Altogether, a book you will not want to miss.
