THE POST READER OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION

Corgi paperback, 1966. Cover illustration uncredited.

Synopsis: 
"A journey with a man who is given one hour in the past - A search for the lost continent of Atlantis - A fantastic hunt with a phantom dog, and the experience of the calamitous, supernatural effects of an atom bomb test...It has become axiomatic in our time that today's fiction is tomorrow's fact. These stories demonstrate the twilight zone where fantasy becomes more real than life, and, science reveals its hidden core of fantasy..."
