The Grandeur of Edmond Hamilton
These 21 superb stories display the full cosmic scope of a writer whose epics of galactic adventure on the heroic scale have enthralled generations of science fiction readers with their conflicts of men, strange beings, and entire planets.
“Thundering Worlds”
Fleeing a dying sun, mankind set out across space — not in starships but in an incredible armada made up of the very planets of the solar system!
“The Man Who Evolved”
He harnessed the energy of the Universe to reach man’s next, godlike stage — and them took the step after that.
“In the World’s Dusk”
The last survivor of the human race brought back the dead to people Earth — and, when that failed, tried an even more desperate way of making his planet live again.
“Exile”
He created a barbaric, nightmarish world — and then he had to live in it!
“Day of Judgment”
The last man and the last woman returned to Earth — to face a jury with a million-year grievance to avenge!
Plus the unforgettable “Requiem,” and fifteen other unique tales alive with a surging sense of wonder.

High Adventure, heroism and great storytelling!
Edmond Hamilton’s remarkable career as a science fiction author spans half a century and is still going strong. His first story, “The Monster-God of Mamurth,” appeared in the August 1926 issue of Weird Tales and foreshadowed what was to become Hamilton’s trademark for years to come: the action-adventure story, strong on suspense and atmosphere, spiced with a delight in the alien and the strange. It was “World-Wrecker” Edmond Hamilton who, more than anybody, opened up the far horizons of science fiction, taking it beyond Earth out to the farthest stars, and still onward to other mysterious unexplored universes.
This mind-expanding collection, edited with an introduction by SF author Leigh Brackett (Hamilton’s wife), presents 21 of his fines works from that earliest 1926 story, through Hamilton’s acclaimed modern day writings. Some of the tales includes:
“The Man Who Returned.” A medical miracle brings John Woodford back from the dead. But there’s little happiness in store for him or his loved ones once he leaves the peace and safety of his crypt ….
“The Seeds from Outside.” Strange alien seeds take root on a hillside and begin growing into human-like creatures – one male, the other female. A roving artist discovers them and falls madly in love with the feminine plant … only to find he’s barking up the wrong tree!
“He That Hath Wings.” David Rand was a normal, handsome young man in every respect – save one. He was born with wings. Having grown up in isolation, his finally had to face the desperate choice of amputating his wings to live with society or soaring on the winds and living forever alone.
“Easy Money.” What are the consequences of beaming a professional prize fighter halfway across the galaxy to a planet of crazed little aliens? Old Dr. Murtha found out when slightly punchy Slugger Martin volunteered for the not-so-easy money.
“In the World’s Dusk.” The last man on Earth tries determinedly to find some company. He puts life into corpses, but they are just walking dead. He snatches people from the past, but the time voyage destroys their minds. Finally there’s only one thing left to do, but is it worth the fire price of failure?
Bound to excite and stir the imagination. THE BEST OF EDMOND HAMILTON is a fitting testimonial to one of science fiction’s founding fathers.

Here is a collection of some of the finest short fiction penned by one of “fathers” of modern science fiction.
These stories were selected (and edited) by his wife Leigh Brackett, an author and a screenwriter. Her screen-writing credits include works on such films as The Big Sleep, Rio Bravo, The Long Goodbye and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
This collection spans nearly half a century of Edmond Hamilton’s work and was selected from a repository of hundreds of stories that he had written over that period.
