From the renowned, Hugo-nominated titan of science fiction comes a collection of his best short stories. “Kuttner is magic”’ (Joe R. Lansdale).
In seventeen classic stories, Henry Kuttner creates a unique galaxy of vain, protective, and murderous robots; devilish angels; and warm and angry aliens. These stories include “Mimsy Were the Borogoves”—the inspiration for New Line Cinema’s major motion picture The Last Mimzy—as well as “Two-Handed Engine,” “The Proud Robot,” “The Misguided Halo,” “The Voice of the Lobster,” “Exit the Professor,” “The Twonky,” “A Gnome There Was,” “The Big Night,” “Nothing But Gingerbread Left,” “The Iron Standard,” “Cold War,” “Or Else,” “Endowment Policy,” “Housing Problem,” “What You Need,” and “Absalom.”
“[A] pomegranate writer: popping with seeds—full of ideas.” —Ray Bradbury
