    1 thought on “Planets of Adventure

    1. Planets of Adventure is an anthology of short stories. It contains one almost full-length story and several shorter stories, all of which are based on the theme implied by the title. The quality of the stories was pretty consistent – they weren’t terribly engaging, but they did hold my interest well enough for short bursts of time. The first story in the book, The Forgotten Planet, was the larger story, taking up about a third of the book. It was about a planet that had been forgotten in the [...]

    2. The first third of this is the novel "The Forgotten Planet", more gross-out horror than hard science fiction. Found myself slogging through the first chunk, and then it picked up rapidly. The biology of an all-fungus planet doesn't really make sense. tells me that it was originally published as short stories starting in the early 1920s -- so perhaps we should cut Leinster some slack for biological missteps.The rest of the anthology is mostly stories from the 1950s that show off the cleverness o [...]

    3. To me, the more interesting stories in here were the ones about the planetary survey engineer who troubleshoots all kinds of problems that threaten to wipe out civilization on various planets. Sort of like his Med Ship stories (which are also very good), but about geophysics instead. Pretty good hard science fiction, actually, though it certainly feels a bit dated now. The other reviewers seem to have their attention focussed on the story with the giant mushrooms and insects, which was actually [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this books. It's a collection of short stories with twists to a lot of them. I will say the first story repeats details over and over and over. This may be due to it being serialized before being published but I'm not sure. Overall I recommend it if you like popcorn sf (something you don't read to deep and just enjoy the ride with.)

    5. Product Description In the first novel, "The Planet Explorer", the fate of the colonies scattered across the galaxy rests with one man, who races against the looming interstellar disaster. And in "The Forgotton Planet" a ship is marooned on a planet whose ecology has gone wild.

    6. I really enjoyed the stories in this rather humourous book written along the same lines as Chris Anvil's Interstellar Patrol.

    7. A series of short stories all of which seemed to end before they began as a result of which I did not enjoy the book very much.I read the e-book version, a free download fromWebScription

    8. An ok read of a collection of stories from thew "Golden Age" horribly dated in its treatment of women, and the propensity for the author to come up with a deus ex machina in some situations is annoyinggood read on the bus or train

    9. How can you go wrong with giant insects? Although a tired theme in sci-fi. It was written in 1920 and a facinating read even today.

    10. A selection of short, classic sci-fi stories and well worth reading. Full review here - [thejumbledbox/200]
