Penguin Science Fiction

Comment
Perhaps the single most influential SF anthology series ever published. Three volumes of exemplary short SF, Penguin Science Fiction, More Penguin Science Fiction and Yet More Penguin Science Fiction, that were vitally important to the development of SF in Britain and that were also highly influential with non-genre readers because they demonstrated how good SF could be. The series was reprinted year after year, highly unusual for anthologies, and the three volumes were eventually combined into The Penguin Science Fiction Omnibus.

FIRST EDITION: Penguin Books, 1961 – 1964
