I have read a book written in the 1930s by one John W. Campbell entitled '<b>Islands In Space</b>'. The book was so old it listed it's sale price as 40 cents (this edition was printed in the 1950s). A damn shame that my idiotic parents threw the goddamn book out as it would have been worth a lot of money today on E-bay. No matter as I more than likely would have kept it for a long time. It was in fair condition.
I would suggest anyone who can find a copy of this book read it and perhaps contact me. I should like a copy of this book. If the copy you obtain was printed in the 1950s, please be advised it is worthless so contact me immediately (heh, heh wink wink).
The story is excellent and deals with science from a 1930s perspective. I daresay the author was far ahead of his time. His scientific principles are the basis for much of today's physics. It is a wonderful read, so much so that although I no longer have the book I managed to download the entire story from a website I found. From the same site I found two other novels which are part and parcel of this story (it is a 3 book collection). They are : <b>Invaders From The Infinite</b> and <b>The Black Star Passes</b>. If you can I would suggest you read them. Excellent stories.
