John Wood Campbell, Jr. (June 8, 1910 – July 11, 1971) was an influential figure in American science fiction. As editor of Astounding Science Fiction (later called Analog Science Fiction and Fact, from late 1937 until his death, he is generally credited with shaping the so-called Golden Age of Science Fiction.

This omnibus is composed of "The Black Star Passes", "Islands Of Space", and "Invaders from the Infinite", all published in Amazing Stories in the early 1930s.

Specifically, these are the "Arcot, Wade, and Morey" stories, and are a loosely linked trilogy. It's space opera along the lines of E.E. Smith's "Skylark of Space" series.

Campbell began writing SF at 18, while a student at MIT. He continued till the late 1930's, when he was hired to be editor of Astounding (later Analog) magazine. Under the pen name of "Don A. Stuart", he wrote SF unlike space opera, such as "Cloak of Aesir" and "Forgetfulness". These don't seem to be available electronically.

And Campbell's most famous story, "Who Goes There?", which was made into "The Thing" in the 1950's and again in the 1980's. The 1980's version was closer to the original story, although Campbell's story is even more "out there". Worth reading.

Not sure of the copyright, but this site has had it posted for about three years:

I'm not certain about copyrights, but I think that Campbell's early work is public domain; at least it is not listed in the copyright renewal site: http://collections.stanford.edu/copy...bell%2C+John+W.

Perhaps I should do a second omnibus of some short stories.

I've included in this epub a brief summary of Campbell's contributions to SF taken from Wikipedia

I've checked on copyrights a bit for Campbell's short stories; I think all of them published in Astounding mag. are not public domain. These include "Who Goes There?". There are a few published in Thrilling Wonder Stories in the 1930s that appear to be PD.
