Here, combined in a single volume, are two of Isaac Asimov's most remarkable science fiction anthologies, The Future in Question and Space Mail. Here we find the gratest of the genre's short stories from the fifties, sixties and seventies, produced by such masterminds as Edmond Hamilton, Willian Tenn, John W. Campbell, Jr., Theodore Sturgeon, A.E. van Vogt, Judith Merril, and Asimov himself.

The titles in The Future in Question ask questions- terrifying, unanswerable, and unsettling questions- designed to provoke, astound, and bewilder. From "What's It Like Out There?" to "Who Can Replace a Man?" to just "Why?", and John W. Campbell, Jr.'s "Who Goes There?" (basis of the John Carpenter movie- The Thing). Asimov's story "The Last Question" is a fitting finale to this volume, as it poses one final, apocalyptic question.

The stories in Space Mail, ingeniously presented as real-life letters, diaries, and memos, deliver bizarre, eerie, and emotionally overpowering signals from beyond and messages from deep within.

In "Flowers for Algernon," the famous story later made into the film Charly, Daniel Keyes deals with the heart-wrenching problem of mental retardation and a miraculous, science fiction cure. A.E. van Vogt's "Dear Pen Pal" records the havoc wreaked by an extraterrestrial pen pal in delightfully amusing letters. And Howard Fast's "The Trap" traces the bizarre consequences of a bold experiment designed to create a race of superchildren.

Asimov's short introductions to each story lead to better understanding of the authors' works and are an invaluable tool for the science fiction buff and the novice alike.

These classic stories from the golden age of science fiction explore some of the strangest happenings of this world and the one beyond. Many of the questions they pose and the futures they envision are just as shocking, frightening, and fascinating today as they were when the stories were written.
