Kornbluth I remember reading that book (with that cover) back in high school. Of the Pohl collaborations, Wolfbane and Gladiator-at-Law are very strange books, but enjoyable in a 50’s “sociological sf” way, especially Gladiator-at-Law, though it’s unable to live up to that incredible title.

Several weeks ago,the Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center came alive as students,alumni,and faculty spent an evening sampling vintage wines and savoring highlights from our Rare Books wine was paired with a rare book,with some interesting guests sampled Lagar Albarino,a white wine from Galicia in northwestern.

Prior to that were the collaborations with Kornbluth, classics The Space Merchants and Gladiator at Law. Didn’t care for either probably because of my dislike for sales weasels and lawyers. As for Heinlein, I couldn’t finish either of my last attempts at Starship Troopers or Farnham’s Freehold.

G-M-L Homes, manufacturers of bubble houses, the greatest advance in the history of architecture, had become the biggest and most powerful corporation in the history of commerce.The Defining Science Fiction Books of the s is a list compiled by super fan James Wallace Harris.Maybe the message seemed more profound at the time, because Gladiator-at-Law feels very much like a period piece given that the future has turned out arguably worse than predicted, with its street gangs seemingly resembling the juvenile delinquents one used to see depicted in older issues of Mad magazine, all Brylcreem and chewing gum.
