Yesterday I remembered about a second hand bookstall in a local market hall so went in for a nosy. What I was hoping for was some good pulp paperbacks from the glory days, or some more for my Pan Book of Horror Collection. I was hoping for some classic pulp westerns as I've never actually given them a go. Was denied them but found a treat. A Corgi Science Fiction book, Nebula Awards Stories Number 9 from 1976. What struck me was the first line by the editor of the anthology:
"Conventional wisdom tells us fiction is dying, the short story is dead."
It made me chuckle, they're still saying that now, 34 years on.
50pence well spent for some classic Sci-Fi.
Problem now being I want to collect the rest of the now defunct series!
