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

During the 1950s, Evelyn E. Smith regularly published science fiction in magazines like Galaxy and Fantastic Universe. Her stories ranged from post-apocalyptic satires to adventure to humor. She also wrote four science fiction novels, which chiefly deal with questions of gender identity. Like all of her work, they are characterized by their sharp wit. At her best, she was the equal of anyone—male or female—writing for the pulp magazines.

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!)

Algol, however, finding that the spot beside the captain’s camp stool was as dry as anything could be on Venus, decided to turn back. * * * * “The difficulty is easily overcome, Captain,” the professor said, still holding on to his patience. “You can continue to cook your own meals from the tinned and packaged foods on board ship. The rest of us will eat fresh native foods prepared by Jrann-Pttt.” “But why,” Miss Anspacher interrupted as she

started to guttate—to cry again. “Cheer up, honey,” Jim said. “It won’t be as bad as you think, because I didn’t forget Christmas was coming. There’s something specially nice for you on its way from Earth; I only hope it gets here on time.” Phyllis sniffled. “Maybe we’ll have a Christmas party, too. Would you like that?” But she remained unresponsive. He turned to the tree. “Christening’s entirely different, though,” he explained. “It’s—I guess naming the fruit would be the best way to describe

At Forty-second Street pigeons fluttered thickly around the public library, fat as ever, their numbers greater, their appetites grosser. The ancient library, he knew, had changed little inside: stacks and shelves would still be packed thick with reading matter. Books are bulky, so only the rare editions had been taken beyond the stars; the rest had been microfilmed and their originals

No appreciation of the fact that all the components that go to make up a production should be a continuing totality, instead of a tenuous coalition of separate forces which disintegrate—” “You, I comprehend, are disemployed at current. I should—” “You won’t find that situation in Russia!” Paul went on, pleased to discover a sympathetic audience in this intelligent foreigner. “Mind you,” he added quickly, “I disapprove entirely of their politics. In fact, I disapprove of all

Just go to a good tailor, put on a little weight, dye your hair, and—” “And I wouldn’t be different any more,” Clarey finished. That wasn’t true; he would always be different. Not that he was deformed, just unappealing. He was below average height, and his eyes and hair and skin were too light. In the past, he knew, there had been pale races and dark races on Earth.
