ToCs of 6 forthcoming collections: Henry Kuttner, C L Moore, Leigh Brackett, Edmond Hamilton, Jack Williamson

All at publisher's site - Haffner Press.

  1. Henry Kuttner & C L Moore's "Detour to Otherness"; ToC. I've read quite a few of these - "Cold War", "Call Him Demon", "The Piper's Son", "Absalom", "Nothing But Gingerbread Left", "Housing Problem", "See You Later", "The Proud Robot", "Gallegher Plus", "The Ego Machine", "Android", "Juke-Box", "Rite of Passage", & "Happy Ending".

    I'll call it a mixed collection - a few very good stories ("Call Him Demon", "Absalom", "The Proud Robot"), most merely good.
  2. Henry Kuttner's "Terror in the House: The Early Kuttner, Volume One"; ToC: I've only read the Lovecraftian "The Graveyard Rats".
  3. Leigh Brackett's "Shannach - The Last: Farewell to Mars"; ToC.
  4. Jack Williamson's "With Folded Hands ... And Searching Mind: The Collected Stories of Jack Williamson, Volume Seven"; ToC. I've only read "With Folded Hands" (download MP3), probably the best known story of Williamson.
  5. Edmond Hamilton's "The Universe Wreckers: The Collected Edmond Hamilton, Volume Three"; ToC.
  6. Edmond Hamilton's "The Collected Captain Future, Volume Two"; ToC.
