#FridayReads: Penguin Galaxy!

fridayreadsFrom the desk of Penguin Classics Executive Editor John Siciliano…

At Penguin Classics we spend most of our time in the past, but this year, for our 70th anniversary, we decided to take a look back at the future—as imagined in some of the greatest sci-fi/fantasy novels of the 20th century. Behold Penguin Galaxy: deluxe hardcover editions of six iconic masterworks of visionary fiction, featuring shimmering foil-stamped covers, bold type design, and a series introduction by the inimitable Neil Gaiman. With this series, some of the most popular, prescient, path-breaking books of the last 70 years—long available mainly in disposable mass-market format—are now available in beautiful, collector-worthy editions, joining the ranks of the Penguin Classics at a moment when science fiction and fantasy pervade some of our most popular cultural franchises, including television, film, fashion, dance, and music.
