Have we mentioned before how much we love Galactic Journey? Regular readers will recognise this site is the journal of an intrepid time traveller, reviewing the 1960′s SF magazines as if they were new. Go. Read. Be amazed.
While it’s really the great classic SF mags that concern the time traveller – the likes of Analog, Asimov’s, F&SF, Galaxy and If – he still finds time to update us on the tense competition of the space race – and to review the odd novel. One such is Fredric Brown‘s The Mind Thing . . .
There are many kinds of books. There are important books, the kind that will be remembered and discussed for decades to come, like Harper Lee’s recent To Kill a Mockingbird. There are progressive books that skirt the edge of convention, like Ted Sturgeon’s Venus Plus X.
And then there are the just plain good reads, neither subtle nor ingenious, but worthy nonetheless–like Fredric Brown’s latest novel, The Mind Thing.
