    1 thought on “The Best of Edmond Hamilton”

    1. This book was one of Phoenix Picks monthly free selections.I was not familiar with the author and really this turned out to be a serious hole in my knowledge. He started writing for the various pulp magazines in the 20's and his career extended up to his death in the 70s.This collection of stories was edited by his wife Leigh Brackett who I was aware of. Her introduction sets up his career quite well and how his stories stood out from the beginning.This is one of the best short story collections [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this. I had read some of Hamilton's stuff before and liked it but this was a very nice collection of many of his best short stories. Certainly there was action, but there was a lot of feeling and emotion and character in these as well, and some truly cool ideas that you could see had a strong influence on later writers and on SF TV and movies.

    3. Though not a huge sci-fi fan, this collection of the late Edmond Hamilton had some read gems. From other reviews I take it that Hamilton was known for some crazy and insane ideas--at least they were considered so at the time he wrote them. He has more than one "mad scientist" style story along with tales of whole worlds being destroyed or saved. But he was also a very good character writer. His stories "What's It Like Out There?" and "He That Hath Wings" are incredibly rich in terms of feeling a [...]

    4. An excellent collection of Edmond Hamilton's stories. Leigh Brackett, the editor of the collection, and Hamilton's wife, had a big job, choosing but a few of Hamilton's many stories for this "best of" collection. As I read previous reviews of this book, I see many comments about the writing credentials of both Brackett and Hamilton, Hamilton's impressive and prolific span of work, and his famous nickname of "worldwrecker." All true and valid points. But, as both a reader and a writer myself, I'd [...]

    5. I was surprised at what a large percentage of the stories first appeared in Weird Tales. Anyway, even with the first one ("The Monster God of Mamurth") Hamilton has his finger on the Lovecraftian pulse of that genre. "The Man Who Evolved" is very cool too (as well as presumably the inspiration for the Outer Limits episode with David McCallum, "The Sixth Finger")--although one does have to wonder why someone who "can send my mind forth to make contact with other minds without the slightest materi [...]

    6. Some good stories in here. Edmond Hamilton is especially good at emotional tales. He also likes end-of-the-world stories—or at least, end-of-man stories, for the world will usually survive. There are at least five in this collection, all very good, and very different. They range from pure fantasy to hard science. The end can come to people, to the planet, to the sun.
