Why the 50s ?

The nonprofit publishing house The Library of America was created in 1979 with seed money from the National Endowment for the Humani1ties and the Ford Foundation. Their ongoing mission is to preserve the cultural heritage of  American writing and publishing. The LOA reissues American literary classics and overlooked treasures in authoritative editions based on scholarly research.

The LOA recently launched a neat online companion to their 1950s Science Fiction Golden Era Collection, with cover art, author interviews and terrific articles on classic books by the likes of Neil Gaiman, William Gibson and Connie Willis
