First Contacts: The Essential Murray Leinster by Murray Leinster


A collection of the trend-setting stories of "the Dean of Science Fiction" which opened and explored such topics as first contact with aliens, the Internet, transfers among parallel universes, and many more. This collection contains 24 stories covering the full spectrum of Leinster's career.

Included are such classic early works as "Proxima Centauri," "First Contact," and one of the earliest alternate timeline stories, "Sidewise in Time." Included are "Keyhole," "De Profundis," and a story written in 1945 that anticipated the Internet, "A Logic Named Joe." The Hugo Award-winning "Exploration Team" was the inspiration for our full-color cover art by Hannibal King. Also, here for the first time are "The Great Catastrophe," his lost pulp epic, and the inspiring "To All Fat Policemen."


There is a four-page introduction by renowned author Hal Clement.
