1. I think I need to buy this also.

I've only read about half of those books, some of them when they first came out, so I can't recall anything about them.

I will be looking forward to read the Budrys novel as I hadn't heard of it before. He didn't write nearly enough, in my opinion. I had the amazing good fortune to meet him nearly twenty years ago, and he was a wonderful man.

2. Great news!

I was about to complain about the absence of Arthur C. Clarke ( I am reading his fifties classic novel, The City and the Stars, and loving it). Then it dawned on me this is the Library of America, so they wouldn't be considering British novelists. I guess there needs to be a similar release of international SF authors. I grok the utter awesomeness that would ensue.

3. Excellent

I haven't gotten around to reading all of these, so this is a good nudge to fill those gaps. The Stars My Destination had a huge effect on me, as did The Space Merchants (aka Gravy Planet) More Than Human, and The Big Time.

The essays on the publisher's site are most interesting -- Neil Gaiman on Leiber? Connie Willis on Heinlein? Looking forward to spending some quality time perusing these! Thanks much.

4. "The Stars My Destination" is really hard to find.

We have one old 60s copy at the thrift store selling for $15.
