from the publisher:
Phoenix Pick’s free ebook of the month for February is the complete
anthology, “The Best of Edmond Hamilton,” edited by his late wife, Leah
Edmond Hamilton is considered by many to be one of the original masters of
the genre. He is also credited as the author of the first science fiction
hardcover compilation “The Horror on the Asteroid and Other Tales of
Planetary Horror” in 1936.
This anthology collects Hamilton’s best works from a repository of
hundreds of stories he had written over a period of nearly fifty years, as
selected (and edited) by his wife.
Leah Brackett (Hamilton) was a distinguished science fiction author in her
own right, and her novels include the classic, ‘The Long Tomorrow,’
considered by many to be one of the finest works about post-nuclear
holocaust America (to be re-published by Phoenix Pick, February 28, 2011).
She was also a highly accomplished Hollywood screenwriter and her credits
include adaptations of Raymond Chandler’s ‘The Big Sleep’ and ‘The Long
Goodbye,’ as well as Star Wars Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back.

Edmond Hamilton is also the creative genius behind the inimitable Captain Future (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Future), the ultimate pulp science fiction hero.
