I hope I shall arrive soon by Philip K Dick( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The late Philip K Dick was a master of science fiction, winner of such prestigious prizes as the Hugo Award and the John W. Campbell Award. His startlingly original imagination has entertained readers for over thirty years and has influenced a generation of science fiction and fantasy writers. I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon marks an event in science fiction publishing, bringing together ten previously uncollected stories and a major essay that has never before been published. Here are fantastic voyages into inner space and outer space, dazzling explorations of alien minds, alien cultures, and alien invasions. From a space-ship that soars beyond the imagination to a space traveler who cheats death, from a shoe with a mind of its own to a gumball machine that is in reality a doomsday machine, these are remarkable stories of magic, mystery and wonder. I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon is Philip K. Dick at his most marvelous and inventive. It draws us into dreamlike realities that defy experience and excite the spirit of adventure in us all."--Jacket

Microcosmic God by Theodore Sturgeon( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second of a planned 10 volumes that will reprint all Sturgeon's short fiction covers his prolific output during 1940 and 1941, after which he suffered five years of writer's block. Showcasing Sturgeon's early penchant for fantasy, the first six selections include whimsical ghost stories, such as "Cargo," in which a World War II munitions freighter is commandeered by invisible, peace-loving fairies. With the publication of his enduring SF classic, "Microcosmic God," Sturgeon finally found his voice, combining literate, sharp-edged prose with fascinating speculative science while recounting the power struggle between a brilliant scientist, who creates his own miniature race of gadget makers, and his greedy banker. Voice found or not, every one of the stories here is readable and entertaining today because of Sturgeon's singular gifts for clever turns of phrase and compelling narrative. As Samuel R. Delaney emphasizes in an insightful introduction, Sturgeon was the single most influential SF writer from the 1940s through the 1960s

Baby is three by Theodore Sturgeon( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Baby Is Three is the sixth volume in the series devoted to the complete works of one of science fiction's titans. Like others in the series, this one includes extensive notes and background information on each story by editor Paul Williams. The early 1950s, during which this material was written, was the beginning of Sturgeon's greatest creative period. The title story for this collection was later expanded into the International Fantasy Award winning novel More Than Human. Sturgeon's whimsical, sardonic sense of humor lifts his work out of the mundane realm of genre science fiction. This wide-ranging collection shows precisely why he has been cited as a primary influence by authors as varied as Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, and Carl Sagan
