The result has been a stunning body of work, including many stories that have become classics. Ed Ferman and In its twenty years of publication, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction has been the single strongest influence for good writing in SF, presenting stories by just about every writer of note, encouraging experimentation, insisting rigorously on high quality. The result has been a stunning body of work, including many stories that have become classics. Ed Ferman and Bob Mills, the most recent in a line of distinguished editors of F&SF have selected twenty stories which appeared in the magazine during its first two decades—stories with a wide range of mood and technique, but all meeting a consistent standard of excellence. The stars of SF are here—Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov (who has also contributed a witty, affectionate introduction), Fritz Leiber, Theodore Sturgeon, Robert Bloch, Alfred Bester, Philip K. Dick—along with memorably individual stories by writers less famous. Carefully avoiding the overanthologized story, the editors have made a fresh selection which will be a delight to all readers of imaginative fiction. * We Can Remember It for You Wholesale • (1966) • novelette by Philip K.
