Science Fiction Golden Oldie now for Kindle
« on: August 04, 2011, 10:16:43 am »
I just got notified by Mysteria that Jerry Sohl's classic Costigan's Needle (1953) has been published for the Kindle. I jumped on that right away. I have a great fondness for this book, it was one of the three free books I got for joining the Science Fiction Book Club back in 1954.

If you're interested in classic, Golden Age SF, this may be for you. The author is quoted as saying he thinks this is his best work. Jerry Sohl wrote a number of books and short stories, and wrote a few episodes of the original Twilight Zone.



Yeah, it's $10, but the paperback is $15.00, and the book was out of print for many years.

    I have been catching up on some of Henlein's books that I somehow missed reading over the years. Just finished Tunnel in the Sky. Can't believe I never read that as a kid.

    This is up the same alley, I need to check it out

    Thanks for the head's up. I love class sf!

    I also read Tunnel in the Sky for the first time not long ago. I swore it was a response to Lord of the Flies, but then I checked the publication dates of both books and realized that wasn't possible.
