    Contains two novellas nominated for the 1939 Retro Hugo Award for Best Novella: "A Matter of Form" by Horace L. Gold - 3-3.5 stars - villains in pursuit of immortality, cliched now but perhaps not so much back then? Sort of Freaky Friday but between a man and a dog. "Who Goes There?" by John W. Campbell, Jr. - 4-4.5 stars - if you've never read this one, you don't know what you're missing. Read it now!

    A great anthology. Includes terrific tales by some of the best writers from the 1930's. Among them is WHO GOES THERE?, by John W. Campbell, Jr. that was later made into three movies. (THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD, John Carpenter's THE THING, and the more recent THE THING.) In the introduction by Isaac Asimov, he had this to say about WHO GOES THERE?: 'It is included here and if you have never read it before, I envy you, for you'll find it among the cleverest and most insidiously horrifying stori A great anthology.

Also included are great stories by H.P. Lovecraft, Jack Williamson and others. If you are into anthologies and science fiction, this one's a treat.
