Valley of Pretenders

Science fiction author Stanley G. Weinbaum died from cancer at 33 in December 1935. Short though his career was, his scientific imagination, smooth characterizations, and pervasive humor completely revolutionized the field, and profoundly influenced his contemporaries. Among his many imitators was English writer John Russell Fearn. Although his own distinctive work was very popular in the SF magazines of the time, the ambitious Fearn wanted to increase his number of acceptances by writing under pseudonyms in the style of Weinbaum! In the late 1930s, the American SF magazine market boomed, and all of Fearn's Weinbaum pastiches found billets. These intriguing stories are here identified and collected for the first time, with fascinating background notes. This is the second volume of two must-have collections, the first of which was published as World Without Chance. Great science fiction adventure reading from the golden era of the pulps!
