Selected Stories of Alfred Bester

Selected Stories of Alfred Bester (ed. BBA)
Requirements: ePUB reader, 0.6Mb
Overview: “… this collection, a cross-section of Alfred Bester’s short fiction, a labor of love by a fan who thinks he’s still worth reading. Via this bit of cyber-necromancy, the words are preserved and presented to a new audience in the format to which they are accustomed, for Alfred Bester’s words were never restricted by medium, and the stories stand on their own as worth every kilobyte. Yes, his science is naive at times and staggeringly wrong in others; yes, his psychology is a mess, and his character’s faces a bit hard to make out under their funny hats, and so on and so forth…
But he was Alfie Bester dammit, and his words were solid gold even when they sold for pennies, and if anyone earned the right to continue being an author it’s him.
