On Monday, I continue my Vacation in the Golden Age of science fiction with the January 1941 issue of Astounding. As good as 1940 was, 1941 looks even better. I think Robert Heinlein has a story in 9 of the 12 issues in 1941. In addition, we start to see more of Isaac Asimov, including the first of his Robot stories, and one of his most famous stories of all time, “Nightfall”. I thought I’d tease you give you a preview this weekend of the next twelve episodes of this Vacation by showing you the upcoming covers for 1941:
There is a lot of good stuff in 1941 and I’m very excited to get into this year, read the stories and report back on them.
So what 1941 stories and authors are you most looking forward to? See back back here on Monday for Episode 19.
The Feb 1941 cover looks familiar…I wonder if it was reused on an old book cover.
