Time Enough Volume 01: Golden Age Space Opera Tales

Time Enough Volume 01: Golden Age Space Opera Tales

Time Travel has been a question ever since some human created the clock.

All these questions about somehow making the clock run backward – and what would happen if…

And so we have enough time stories to fill two anthologies. Because people can’t quit imagining the different worlds we’d create if we could – just once – go back and change some little thing.

Maybe some of these writers are right about that. Maybe it’s just too dangerous a subject to consider.

Or maybe these are all nice fiction stories to while away your time and keep you thoroughly grounded in the present.

I guess you’ll just have to read these for yourself to find out for sure…

Space Opera is a subgenre of science fiction that emphasizes space warfare, melodramatic adventure, interplanetary battles, chivalric romance, and risk-taking. Set mainly or entirely in outer space, it usually involves conflict between opponents possessing advanced abilities, futuristic weapons, and other sophisticated technology.

The term has no relation to music, as in a traditional opera, but is instead a play on the terms “soap opera”, a melodramatic television series, and “horse opera”, which was coined during the 1930s to indicate a formulaic Western movie. Space operas emerged in the 1930s and continue to be produced in literature, film, comics, television, and video games.

The Golden Age of Pulp Magazine Fiction derives from pulp magazines (often referred to as “the pulps”) as they were inexpensive fiction magazines that were published from 1896 to the late 1950s. The term pulp derives from the cheap wood pulp paper on which the magazines were printed. In contrast, magazines printed on higher-quality paper were called “glossies” or “slicks”. (Wikipedia)

The pulps gave rise to the term pulp fiction. Pulps were the successors to the penny dreadfuls, dime novels, and short-fiction magazines of the 19th century. Although many writers wrote for pulps, the magazines were proving grounds for those authors like Robert Heinlein, Louis LaMour, “Max Brand”, Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, and many others. The best writers moved onto longer fiction required by paperback publishers. Many of these authors have never been out of print, even long after their passing.
