Eighteen masters of science fiction are gathered together here in a spectacular tribute to this imaginative genre. Culled from the ground-breaking radio shows Dimension X, X Minus One, Exploring Tomorrow, Lights Out, The Shadow, Lux Radio Theatre, and CBS Radio Workshop come the experts who created and defined the realm in their fabulous works of fiction--among them Robert A. Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Sprague de Camp, Philip K. Dick, Clifford D. Simak, and H.G. Wells. This unparalleled collection starts with Destination Moon by Heinlein which jumped-started the genre, and closes with the rare radio adaptation from the movie War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. Each collection comes complete with a 32-page booklet detailing these futuristic shows from the 1940s and 1950s.
