Vintage Science Fiction

Vintage Science Fiction


In 1969 Richard E. Peck published the first of his 30-plus short stories, a dozen in the next decade. Readers have termed them action tales, comic vignettes, minimalism, or even “early slipstream” . . . a term he’d never heard till his newest novel, Schmidt’s Mill (2011), earned the same accolade . . . He’d rather call them Vintage Science Fiction.

Product Description


Richard E. Peck’s foray into science fiction in the 1970s produced a string of stories that combine action plots with logical (often grim) visions of the future — a classic sf mode — [and] early examples of slipstream.” — Tom Purdom, author of The Tree Lord of Imeten

Good science fiction [offers] a thought-provoking idea or situation . . . Richard Peck gives us thirteen stories of people dealing with future conditions with recognizable antecedents in [today] . . . From the opening sentences, they’re good reads, good science fiction from 1969 to 1979.” — J.B. Post, compiler of An Atlas of Fantasy
