Description


John Wood Campbell Jr. became a published author of science fiction literature at quite a young age. In 1930, he had his first sci-fi story published by a local magazine, only to go on a path toward writing a series of other accomplished tales and short novels that have inspired sci-fi writers for years to come.

The Black Star Passes is one of Campbell’s well-known series of sci-fi stories published long after he became the editor of Astounding Stories magazine (1937), changing the face of sci-fi forever. His stories include daring adventures of first contact with races of extraterrestrial beings capable of wiping out two entire planets, a sky pirate inventor armed with weapons of his own design, or the arrival of a dark sun that could spell the end of civilization in our Solar System as we know it.

The book is the first in a series dedicated to scientist-astronauts Arcot, Wade, and Morey – brilliant scientific minds who are tasked with solving the most difficult challenges they can come across. All these stories and many others are written in Campbell’s unmistakable tone and style, offering hours of enjoyable entertainment that any fan of classic sci-fi stories will be simply delighted by.

While published in 1953, the set of stories actually includes some items that were responsible for John Wood Campbell’s ascent to literary success. These adventures are classics of modern sci-fi literature that, although have received mixed critical reviews at the time, are now considered to be some of the most brilliant works of literature that authors and screenplay writers from the late 20th century and beyond have used as their inspiration to produce new stories, shows or movies.

Anyone interested in genuine, thrilling sci-fi works will simply love Campbell’s exciting plots and fast-paced developments, as well as the relatable characters he includes in his stories.
