I’ve never read any of Henry Kuttner’s work before. I didn’t even know about him until recently. His stuff is available as ebooks so he’s hardly one lost to history. But reading what other sci-fi legends have to say about him—I am Legend is dedicated to him with thanks for help encouragement—his relative obscurity seems a crime.

I came across The Best of Henry Kuttner at a used bookstore not long ago and it seems to contain a good sampling of his stories. But, I’m most excited to read whatever Gallegher stories are included. These are about a man who is a genius inventor when drunk but has no recollection of what he built or what it does when he’s sober. How are these not better known?

I could be late to the game. Maybe everyone knows about Kuttner and his stories. But, it’s new to me and I’m excited to check them out.


What are you reading this week?


I want to give you an audiobook.

It's a collection of short stories about time travel, alien invasions, selling homes in alternate dimensions, giant combiner robots, post-apocalyptic beagles and much more. And it's all read by the amazing Phil Thron.

It's yours when you sign up for my newsletter.
