If science fiction had a cynic back in the middle of the last century, it was C.M. Kornbluth, who died way too young but managed to leave an impressive body of work behind despite that. He’s known for his collaborations with Fredrick Pohl, amongst others.

In the Kindle edition of, Eight Worlds of C.M. Kornbluth (Amazon link) you will find a fine collection of his short stories. Some, like The Marching Morons, have been widely reprinted in other collections but others have not and deserve your attention.

All are very good, they don’t read as if they were written 60-70-years-ago (which they were) and feature that cynical humor that Kornbluth was famous for. For 99-cents, a bargain and fun read.
