Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in Islands of Space
by John W. Campbell

"WHEREAS atomic power is not yet a thing of actuality, but rather a much hoped for future realization, our young author goes beyond this still necessarily limited power. Says Mr. Campbell, there is tremendous power in the cosmos. Why limit ourselves to the mere atom as a source of power? But even his imagination, accustomed as it is to conquering vast space — even beyond our galaxy, seems somewhat appalled at the prospect of some day learning the secret of cosmic power.

Arcot, Morey, their respective fathers, and Wade are characters well known to a good many of our readers — and well liked. But that is the only relationship between "Islands of Space” and Mr. Campbell's previous stories. You cannot afford to miss this novel-length classic of science fiction. It is the best story by this author that has been published thus far "
