I read lots of short stories from this period; it's what got me started into liking science fiction when I was a kid, but when it comes to novels, I've only read Heinlein, Asimov, Bradbury, Harry Harrison, Richard Matheson and some others from this period, 1930 to 1950s. I tend to read more modern novels (1970s and on).
Anyone recommend any good novels from this period?
I love A.E. Van Vogt, so i picked up his "Slan" and "World of Null-A" novels.
Also like Clifford D. Simak, Lewis Padgett (Henry Kuttner & C.L Moore writing team), Fredric Brown, Theodore Sturgeon, C. M. Kornbluth, William Tenn and many others but never read any novels by them.
At the time, in the 1970s and 80s when I was a little kid, so many of these novels were out of print so I had no access, so I just kept reading the short stories that were often reprinted.
