Classic stuff. Feldstein spins some great SF fables, many linked to the Cold War era, others reflecting on modern technology more generally.

Nice collection of Feldstein's science fiction work for EC comics. Since so much of his work was writing for other artists, there's a section of stories by other artists in addition to Feldstein's own work. The book is rounded out with several essays and an interview. Kudos to Fantagraphics for the excellent job they've done on this series of books spotlighting the various EC talents.
