    Liking this book was a bit of a surprise for me. For the past year or more, I've had a hard time reading any hard sf, military sf or serious mysteries. I guess you could call this military SF, of a sort. But I guess the Man-Kzin Wars series is just such an old favorite series, that I read it straight through. This book is two shorter works.   I really liked Orbit, by John J. Nance, if Low Earth Orbit counts as ‘space.’ If ‘space’ means ‘anywhere off Earth,’ then it’s hard to do better than The Martian (Andy Weir). Asimov had a short series of short stories about Gregory Powell and Mich.

    Scholars of the subject tend to claim that science fiction’s “Golden Age” dates to John W. Campbell’s assumption of the editorship of the pulp magazine my reckoning, however, Campbell and his cohort first began to develop their literate, analytical, socially conscious science fiction in reaction against the advent of the campy Flash Gordon . Books related to this project include The Ascent of Wonder, The Hard SF Renaissance, and Hieroglyph, as well as the Year's Best SF series I co-edited with David G. Hartwell. I .
