The Golden Age of Science Fiction Megapacks are designed to introduce readers to classic science fiction writers who might otherwise be forgotten.

Dave Dryfoos (1915-2003), who produced a steady stream of frothy SF stories for the likes of Galaxy Science Fiction, Fantastic Adventures, Startling Stories, Imagination, Future Science Fiction, and others is one such unjustly forgotten author.

About the Megapacks
Over the last few years, our “Megapack” series of ebook anthologies has proved to be one of our most popular endeavors. (Maybe it helps that we sometimes offer them as premiums to our mailing list!) One question we keep getting asked is, “Who’s the editor?”
The Megapacks (except where specifically credited) are a group effort. Everyone at Wildside works on them. This includes John Betancourt, Mary Wickizer Burgess, Sam Cooper, Carla Coupe, Steve Coupe, Bonner Menking, Colin Azariah-Kribbs, Robert Reginald. A. E. Warren, and many of Wildside’s authors… who often suggest stories to include (and not just their own!)

The only thing that gave him pause, aside from the difficulty of seeing, was his arrest record, and in time he decided to put it down just as it was, including the pending assault charge with its implication of jumped bail. After an hour a young captain entered the building and went to the office marked Adjutant. A fat major gave Ollie a piercing glance and then entered the Civilian Personnel office. At about five minutes of eight

And I’m bound and determined to go!” “At the price of not seeing your wife and boy for a long time?” Silence. Then, “That’ll be O.K., Dad. Just so my boy wants to pilot, too. Just so he wants to be like his Grandpa—” The air went dead again, till Twoie asked, “Still there, Dad?” “Yeah, I’m here,” Ray answered heavily. “And I guess I’ll still be here when you get back. Good luck, Twoie. I’ll

I went outside then, for the first time, and he joined me almost immediately. After looking at a few other things he

At least I pay cash.” “Now you’ve insulted us both!” Carrie snapped. “You get that gadget out of here, understand? I’ll give you exactly one week and if it’s still here then you’ll go with it!” “You heard the lady!” Herc echoed maliciously. “One week to shrink to invisibility this impious implement of insult. And if you shrink from the task I’ll personally diminish you to a

But you know how women are. Carrie was weeping when I joined her in the kitchen—sobbing and consoling herself with a peanut-butter, jelly, margarine, tomato and sardine sandwich. “You—you bully, you!” she howled. “You ran my fiancé right out of my own house.
