Free eBook: Collected Editorials of John W Campbell

John W Campbell is a name that any SF fan should remember. He is widely considered one of the giants of the Golden Age of Science Fiction.  While he is not a famous author,  he was the editor in chief of Analog SF Magazine. He held this post from late 1937 until his death in 1971.

Today’s free eBook was only recently uploaded to the Internet Archive, and the original paper copy came from my personal library. It’s a collection of the editorials that Campbell wrote in most of the issues of Analog. But it’s not a complete set, just the ones that were selected by Harry Harrison.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in understanding that period of SF history, and even the history of the US.  It is also a fascinating read simply because Campbell is an excellent writer.

The eBook is available as a PDF of scanned pages as well as Epub, Kindle, and other text files that had been converted from the scanned pages.
