Short Science Fiction Collection 073 by Various ( - ).

Science fiction is a genre encompassing imaginative works that take place in this world or that of the author’s creation where anything is possible. The only rules are those set forth by the author. The speculative nature of the genre inspires thought and plants seeds that have led to advances in science. The genre can spark an interest in the sciences and is cited as the impetus for the career choice of many scientists. It is a playing field to explore social perspectives, predictions of the future, and engage in adventures unbound into the richness of the human mind. ( A. Gramour)
  • This collection is for science fiction stories of less than 70 minutes in duration that are in the Public Domain(with expired copyright, or published before 1925).

From Weird Tales, October 1923

I like "From Weird Tales, October 1923 " it supplies context that makes the story more interesting (not that I have listened) but it is there when I read on my ebook. If you know the story was written 100 years ago instead of 50 or 60, it has a different flavor.

I am new and have no idea what the rules about this are, but I hope it is ok.

Apologies if I make mistakes, I'm very new to the forum.

I understand that there's no need to claim, but I would like to enter reading "I'll Kill You Tomorrow" by Helen Huber.
