Celebrating the Birth . . . Cyril M. Kornbluth

Cyril M. Kornbluth (July 2, 1923 – March 21, 1958) was an important classic-era science fiction writer, despite his tragically early death. Best known for a pair of novels, The Space Merchants and Gladiator at Law, that he co-authored with Frederik Pohl. One of Kornbluth's stories, "The Meeting," was completed posthumously by Pohl and one a Hugo.  Enjoy this small, free sampling of his work as we honor a great writer, who was taken from us to soon.
