Synopsis: From the front flap of the Frederick Fell first edition: "The publishers of Fell's Science-Fiction Library are proud to present this book that brings together in permanent form the finest science-fiction novels of the year by the world's great science-fiction writers, under the distinguished editorship of Everett F. Bleiler and T. E. Dikty. With the advent of this annual volume, we are pleased to give additional impetus to the skyrocketing progress of science-fiction as a great contribution to entertainment, to literature and to scientific thinking. Here are the year's best novels: Izzard and the Membrane by Walter M. Miller, Jr. - A fast moving novel combining the brilliant development of the mechanical brain and a realistic story of future military conflict. ...And Then There Were None by Eric Frank Russell - With wit and originality, Mr. Russell outlines a perfect world where tyranny has not yet made its appearance! Flight to Forever by Poul Anderson - An exciting full length voyage into time and space as the hero searches for a way back to his own age. The Hunting Season by Frank Robinson - An Outsider in our times stumbles through the strange culture of the 20th Century in a fantastic novel that mounts to a gripping climax. Seeker of the Sphinx by Arthur C. Clarke - Great Britain's eminent authority on rocketry weaves a tale based on what might be called "theories of life" - with interesting results! Whether you are a confirmed science-fiction addict or a newcomer to the thrilling science-fiction scene - a reader for knowledge or for escape - you will find entertainment and education in this "most fascinating fiction of the future.""
