Product Description

The Best of Gordon R. Dickson Volume 1

The best of the best from a legendary master of science fiction, the first of two volumes.

The Best of Gordon R. Dickson, Volume I, gathers together fourteen stories, predominantly from the first half of legendary science fiction and fantasy writer Gordon R. Dickson’s career, ranging from the early 1950s through the 1960s, including tales dragons, dolphins, aliens, werewolves, mutants and humans trying to make sense of an infinitely bewildering universe. A maiden aunt is suddenly given superpowers. An alien who looks like a large, sentient rabbit makes ominous announcement which make no sense from behind an impenetrable force shield. Humans besieged by an alien enemy refuse, against all reason, to give up fighting. And much more, in stories running the gamut from exciting adventure to stark tragedy to hysterical comedy. Plus the never before published “Love Story,” written for Harlan Ellison’s legendary, but never published anthology, The Last Dangerous Visions. And stay tuned for The Best of Gordon R. Dickson, Volume II, with another generous display of Dickson’s virtuosity, covering his brilliant career from 1970s to the century’s end.

Meet the Author

Gordon R. Dickson (1923-2001) was one of the most prolific and popular science fiction writers of the 20th Century, frequently nominated for the Hugo and Nebula Awards and winning three Hugos and one Nebula. He also received the Jupiter, August Derleth, and Skylark Awards, and was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. He published nearly fifty solo novels, as well as several collaborations with such SF masters as Poul Anderson, Ben Bova, Keith Laumer, and Harry Harrison, and over one hundred and fifty short stories, novelettes, and novellas. His most popular works were the novels and shorter pieces in the Childe cycle (which included the Dorsai stories). Also very popular was his Dragon series of fantasy novels, which began with the award-winning The Dragon and the George, and continued for a total of nine novels, and the humorous Hoka stories, co-authored with Poul Anderson.
