This collection of short novels and stories was a very well formatted set. A linked Table of Contents made it very easy to find your way through this massive book. A VERY large collection and a terrific bargain. No typos or formatting issues. If you like classic pulp fiction, especially Edgar Rice Burroughs, this is great starting point.

This collection is okay if one is fond of Burroughs. There are ten of his works in it and two Wells. There is one Norton, and one Jules Verne. These are works from early science fiction, and, as such, have an antiquated feel to them. One can almost smell the dry, dusty scent of the paper on which they were originally printed. They were fine stories in there day, But that was just too long ago. There are too many names from the second half of the 20th century to call it an "ultimate"collection. 8If you are interested in the roots of science fiction, by all means, buy this book, but, without, Asimov, Bloch, Anderson, Van Vogt, or any of the luminaries of the century, do not think of this as the @ultimate" collection of science fiction.

All Burroughs, & NO TABLE OF CONTENTS?
Surely, anyone loving sci-fi and apprecative of
normal anthology form could do better! I wasted my $2.00.

When I purchased this product I expected a Science Fiction anthology. That is not what I got. Most of the items are far from being S.F. While the stories are not bad, I enjoyed the use of the English language as it was written in the 1800s, but if you arg going to call this S.F. then it should be S.F.

None can tell a story like ERB. Checkout his other works on the Lost World for more interesting stuff. Aloha!
