I very highly recommend Henry Kutner's The Dark World and Elak of Atlantis. :)

I ordered the last three (the Silverberg books) last night. I don't know when the well will run dry.

Of course. I just finished my first Planet Stories (Ship of Ishtar), was generally pleased, and expected I would buy some more in the future, particularly if they did any more Merritt.

What have been everybody's favorites so far?

Soon as I saw this, I clicked the link, then flagrantly violated my NO BLOODY TRADE-PAPERBACKS Rule and ordered the Hok and Elak collections.

Hard to choose, plus I haven't read them all, yet. Sword of Rhiannon is probably my best read, so far. I really enjoyed the silliness of Robots Have No Tails. I am currently working through Who Fears the Devil? between other reads - it's a great collection of weird tales.

Damn. I was hoping for Kline's Venus series to get the uncut reprint treatment. This has been a great series, and I truly hope it returns someday, somehow.

My fav Paizo read so far is Robot Have No Tails by Henry Kuttner.

The 4 Galloway Gallagher short stories, a drunken scientist who is brilliant inventor only when he is drunk, lets his brilliant subconscious take control of him. When he is sober he barely knows what protons,neutrons are. The stories are usually puzzles dealing with things that his brilliant self has invented that gets him in trouble with people because he can't remember what he did.

They are NOT taking any new subscriptions. They will finish out the ones they have.

You can order from wherever you like, I just assume the supply will run out. Not sure when.
