The definitive collection of the best in science fiction stories between 1929 and 1964.
This book contains 26 of the greatest science fiction stories ever written. They represent the considered verdict of the Science Fiction Writers of America, those who have shaped the genre and who know, more intimately than anyone else, what the criteria for excellence in the field should be.
The authors chosen for the Science Fiction Hall Fame are the men and women who have shaped the body and heart of modern science fiction; their brilliantly imaginative creations continue to inspire and astound new generations of writers and fans.
In "The Roads Must Roll", Robert Heinlein describes an industrial civilization of the future caught up in the deadly flaws of its own complexity. "Country of the Kind", by Damon Knight, is a frightening portrayal of biological mutation. "Nightfall", by Isaac Asimov, one of the greatest stories in the science fiction field, is the story of a planet where the sun sets only once every millennium and is a chilling study in mass psychology.
Originally published in 1970 to honor those writers and their stories that had come before the institution of the Nebula Awards, The Science Fiction Hall Of Fame, Vol. One, was the book that introduced tens of thousands of young listeners to the wonders of science fiction.

Includes Flowers for Algernon, Nightfall and more

Flowers for Algernon was probably the best narrated story I have ever listened to. All the other short stories are also solid.
I got this collection just for Nightfall by Isaac Asimov witch was great but discovered many other fantastic stories. All of them between 1-2 hours long and ideal for a train ride or short flight. It would have been great if the chapters had the name of the book in them but that is the only complaint I have with this collection.
