"A Wonderful View of the Early Amazing Stories. Amazing Stories developed a stable of writers who wrote good original science fiction. This anthology gives you a good selection of their developing materials." Amazon 5-stars review.

"An enormously enjoyable treat, one that has opened my eyes to what was happening in the world of science fiction in that period. Hugely entertaining. It should be required reading for anyone interested in this era of science fiction." Goodreads, 5-star review.

It was a breathtaking year for science fiction, an editorial breakthrough that changed in an instant the nature of science fiction, at least as presented in pulpwood publications, and its impact can be seen in almost every story lauded by Amazing Stories' readers in 1930 and/or hailed by critics in subsequent years as among the field's enduring masterworksmost of which appear in this volume of The Best of Amazing Stories. Louise Taylor Hansen's "The Prince Of Liars," G. Peyton Wertenbaker's "The Ship That Turned Aside," Edmond Hamilton's "The Man who Saw the Future," Merab Eberle's "The Mordant," and the others we have selected as among the year's most acclaimed stories are, by the standards of the time, lean, mean, fighting machines. While remaining solidly rooted within the possibilities of future science, and filled with thought-provoking ideas, they proceed straight along their path to the end, with hardly a doff of the hat to explanation and technical detail.
