C. M. Kornbluth's A Mile Beyond the Moon
by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE - February 26, 2012

In December, 2011, I realized that Frederik Pohl & C. M. Kornbluth were precursors to the greatness of Philip K. Dick.

I got it from a "Friends of the Library" sale. Very interesting. Love it for its jangly 50's sci-fi and fantasy magazine tropes, but even more for its deeply cynical political analysis.

"Make Mine Mars" just can't be beat by any author, living or dead.

It might be difficult to find a copy of this long out of print book, but it's well worth it.
