Occasionally the monthly pick is a classic science fiction tale, usually selected by Tom. Some of these picks were published in the mid-twentieth century, when the colorful covers of mass-market paperbacks attracted our attention and our quarters. Those of us old enough to remember them, now call them vintage and occasionally spend a lot more than a quarter to buy a nice copy. These paperbacks were published in the US and UK. There is a gallery of first editions and for some even older picks, go to the fiction mags page.
