It took me a while to finally use this beautiful device I got from my wife and read "something" on it. Shame on me!
It all happened during our September holiday to the Greek Island of Rhodes. Before we left I Amazoned and got me some non-fiction and this 69¢ bundle of SciFi short stories.
To be honest, I didn't know what to expect of these little antiques. Most of them were written in the fifties and the sixties during the early days of the genre. The imagination of the writers was not hampered by scientific discoveries and as a result our solar system is still populated with many alien cultures. Where needed the laws of physics are bend by the authors to fit the craziest and imaginative stories. The threat of a nuclear disaster and communism is still present and this translates into interesting and fascinating tales. MegaPack is a great read if you don't mind the inaccuracies and the dated language and style.

January 2012. I solemnly promise myself to read at least one book per month. It doesn't really matter what, as long as I r.e.a.d!
