      Nice, Bill! I would pick up copies of SUPER-SCIENCE FICTION whenever I’d run across them. But I know I don’t have a complete set. The ones I found really entertained me.

      TALES FROM SUPER-SCIENCE FICTION is a dandy volume, Sergio. Haffner Press just published it and it will sell out fast. Well worth a look!

    There are a few names ton that ToC that I haven’t seen mentioned in a log while. I’m tempted, but my vow to buy less – and spend less – holds me back. Maybe it will show up under the “birthday tree”. I have several other Haffner books, yet unread, waiting on a shelf, though. Great stuff!

      If I were you, Rick, I’d work that “birthday tree” idea. I’ve been impressed with all the Haffner Press books I’ve purchased and TALES FROM SUPER-SCIENCE FICTION is a terrific value. If we don’t support small presses, they’ll just go away.

    SUPER-SCIENCE is one of the unlikeliest of magazines to get such treatment…but it was one of the extremes in its direction in the fiction magazine field, and certainly enough good and great people wrote for it…

      I’m impressed with the covers on those issues of SUPER-SCIENCE FICTION, Todd. And, of course, the stories inside are well-worth reading.

    Thanks for letting us all know this book is out. It’s been in my Amazon shopping cart for a long time. Looks like now’s the time to pull the trigger.

      You’ll love TALES FROM SUPER-SCIENCE FICTION, Steve. It took me right back to the Fifties. And Haffner Press publishes wonderful books.
