Telepaths, time machines and alien encounters collide with the crime and mystery genre in this new collection exploring the space where detective stories and science fiction meet.
To reflect the broad spectrum of this genre Mike Ashley has selected ten of its most ingenious mysteries spanning the decades from 1912 to 1972. These are stories of AI acting against programming, locked-room murders in the confines of spacecraft and cases pitching the police against psychic perpetrators, penned by some of the greatest writers of crime and science fiction including P. D. James, Anthony Boucher, Isaac Asimov and Miriam Allen deFord.
Mike Ashley is the author and editor of more than one hundred books, and is one of the foremost historians of popular fiction. He has edited several British Library Science Fiction Classics anthologies and is the author of Yesterday’s Tomorrows, a companion to classic British science fiction published by the British Library.
