Dig Into Nearly 30 Years of Free Classic Science Fiction
Quote
If you’re a fan of classic science fiction from the likes of Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Robert A. Heinlein, you’re in luck. Archive.org now has a massive collection of the magazine Galaxy Science Fiction for you to peruse for free.

The collection has over 350 issues spanning from 1950 to 1976, and even includes an early version of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, The Fireman, as well as Isaac Asimov’s The Caves of Steel, and Alfred Bester’s The Stars My Destination. While the collection isn’t quite the entire run of GSF, it’s probably more than enough to keep you busy. Besides, you can’t beat free. You can browse through the entire collection at the link below.

The Collection
‘War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.' 1984

Wow!  Good stuff. Thanks
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

I, Robot ... compiled version is 1950.  From articles going back to 1940, by Isaac Asimov.

Mars Chronicles ... 1950, by Ray Bradbury

The current version would be I, Triggered ;-)  Or how about A Clockwork Hillary?
