Book: In the Beginning – Tales from the Pulp Era

If you have enjoyed the writings of Robert Silverberg, as I have, and if you still occasionally (or more often!) enjoy some of the early action based science fiction, then this book is for you. It’s a collection of 16 short stories by Silverberg from the 1950s, with introductions and commentary.

I really enjoyed this collection. It doesn’t strain one’s mental capacity, but it is exceptionally entertaining. You have to do some additional “suspension of disbelief” when the topic is alien beings from various planets of this solar system (we have folks from Mercury, Venus, Mars, and even Pluto).

I heartily recommend this one for some fine entertainment, light reading, and a little bit of not-too-obtrusive history.
