Summary (From the publisher):

Who is Stanley G. Weinbaum?

"With one single story Weinbaum was instantly recognized as the world's best living science fiction writer..."-from the Introduction by Isaac Asimov

This event took place in 1934. The story was A MARTIAN ODYSSEY, and, as Asimov explains, it became a model for almost every other writer in the field. And, Asimov continues, "By the time of Weinbaum's death only one and a half years later, he had published twelve stories; eleven more appeared posthumously. Yet... he remains alive in the memories of fans. Any collection of his stories remains a major event in science fiction."

It is therefore with great pride that Ballantine Books chooses to launch an important new series--the best works of the top writers in the field of science fiction--with THE BEST OF STANLEY G. WEINBAUM
