Venture back, long ago, to the far-away world… of Venus. An amazing pastiche-slash-homage to the likes of Burroughs, done with modern sensibilities and writing style.
A collection of the greatest science fiction stories and novellas from the year 1943, with notes by Asimov. A great selection, with many excellent authors and stories represented.
First manned expedition to Venus finds not a steaming pulp paradise, but a blasted wasteland populated by automated death machines. Not as interesting as that sounds.
