By Robert Silverberg with a new introduction by the author

Science-fiction legend Robert Silverberg reflects on some of his earliest, least-reprinted tales in this new Planet Stories collection! Between 1956 and 1958, Silverberg contributed dozens of short stories and novellas to the digest pulps, each written in the bombastic, high-adventure style of the original Planet Stories magazine. Since then, those tales have re-appeared only rarely (and sometimes never again) in long out-of-print paperback anthologies. This volume, the first of three to come this year, features seven hard-to-find classic Silverberg novellas:

  • Slaves of the Star Giants
  • Spawn of the Deadly Sea
  • The Flame and the Hammer
  • Valley Beyond Time
  • Hunt the Space-Witch!
  • The Silent Invaders
  • Spacerogue

Never before collected in a single edition, these stories reveal the early action-packed tales of one of speculative fiction's most important voices!

Announced! Cover image is a mockup.


Ooh, this sounds like it'll be good. I always love reading stories that showed up in the original Planet Stories magazine.

Now I've got the theme from Dastardly and Muttley's 'Catch the Pigeon!' cartoon running through my head.

You had me at "Space-Witch".

Also, this is one mockup I actually wouldn't mind as the final cover.


Did I read that right, and that this is first of three Silverberg collections for 2011? Out of 6 PS books for the year?

Still, it does look interesting.

Historically, multiple books from the same author are fairly normal for Planet Stories... but where we've always spaced the books out a bit before, we're now experimenting with releasing them closer together. Feel free to let us know what you think about that!

I just hope they get to 6 Planet Stories this year.

A fan still cheering for as much as they can deliver (although twice/month might get hard to keep up with).

If I kept up with my reading, I'd probably prefer variety. Since I'm always behind on my reading and just pull from the shelf at random, having multiple books by the same author doesn't bother me at all.

And it's very nice to see the 2011 calendar filling out.


The cover indeed looks awesome. If Paizo means to start reprinting more of the old Planet Stories material, I hope they get to a collection of Leigh Brackett's short fiction for PS; her work has been out of print for a shockingly long time.

Just got the Complete Hok the Mighty and am enjoying it, and now looking forward to a collection of early Silverberg in 3 months. Keep it up, and as always, pulling for an increased production schedule.

Just finished the book. Seven stories. Enjoyed it a lot, Although, they do have the typical short story problem. You get a lot of development and then BAM, something happens and the story is over. Would have liked to see a few of these stories with 80-150 or more pages length. Looking forward to reading Robert Silverberg a few more times this year.

You might wish to track down the novel-length version of the Silent Invaders, to see where that one would have gone with more space.


Is there a particular reason this is showing up on Amazon and Bookdepository as not released until Jan 2012, or is it a glitch somewhere?

Amazon seem to like making up dates. However, I'm surprised they don't actually *have* this, because it's been out since May. We'll look into it.

Thanks for that!
