Here are the very best of them, complete with the original, visually stunning retro art plus chapter introductions by astrophysics professor, science-fiction author, and former NASA advisor Gregory Benford. "Endlessly fascinating."-- Booklist. " A wonderful coffee-table book that you will also want to read page-by-page."--Joe Haldeman, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of The Forever War. "All these fantastically fabulous futures, and I get to live in none of them--and no, having an iPod Touch does not make up for it--but at least I have this book, which almost does."--John Scalzi, bestselling author of Old Man's War
