Following 2011′s THE UNIVERSE WRECKERS, THE COLLECTED EDMOND HAMILTON, VOLUME THREE, Haffner Press keeps pouring gasoline on the fire as we announce the next volume(s) of collected stories from one of the godfathers of Space Opera.

THE REIGN OF THE ROBOTS, THE COLLECTED EDMOND HAMILTON, VOLUME FOUR is certainly worth your coppers as herewith are contained no fewer than 10 unreprinted stories from WEIRD TALES and/or WONDER STORIES. Alongside these soon-to-be-presented wonders, you’ll find some of Hamilton’s classic works such as “The Man Who Evolved” and “A Conquest of Two Worlds”

Noted scholar and editor, Mike Ashley handles the introduction for this mighty tome.

As with previous volumes in this series, an appendix showcasing the original pulp magazine illustrations also bulks large with obscura including reader’s letters from the vintage magazines commenting on these stories, along with editorial correspondence between Hamilton and his editors.
