PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention
Amazon.com: THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF SCIENCE FICTION STORIES BY JAMES REASONER eBook: James Reasoner: Kindle Store: This collection brings together all of legendary author James Reasoner's science fiction stories together in one place, including two never before published. Set on Earth, the Moon, and distant planets, these stories range from the retro hardboiled private eye yarn "Terran Girls Make Wonderful Wives" to the Western-influenced "The Border Shift". Set on a hardscrabble mining planet, the melancholy "Bugeyes", which one reviewer referred to it as a cross between Robert Heinlein and Ray Bradbury, explores the relationship between humans and aliens, while "Season of Storms" and the title story take place on near-future Earths that have dangers and challenges all their own. These five novellas and novelettes add up to 50,000 words of science fiction adventure!
