For the majority of readers new to science fiction, a landing on another planet-a planet, because unknown, even more perilous than Earth-must be their peak experience of the genre.

New York, NY : Night Shade Books, 2017. I turned to my local library and discovered Asimov’s Foundation trilogy, Frank Herbert’s Dune, and later, Brian Aldiss’ two-volume anthology, Galactic Empires. For that time, this was probably the best possible introduction I could have had. Brian’s anthologies introduced me to new authors and variations on the theme that I could spend years exploring. That journey took me through the works of E. E. Doc Smith, A. van Vogt, Clifford Simak, and many more. As I grew older, my interests broadened, but I remained fascinated.

MAN'S GALACTIC EMPIRE IS WON...

The first stepping stones is Mars, then the plumed beauty of the winged planet, the telepathic wizardry of a world yearning to bestow utopia upon earthlings, the hospital plant that dispenses immortality to space Gods, and finally, the foundation is laid atop the rubble of fallen star systems - an Empire, vast and glorious, stretching from galactic horizon to the oracle planet of the future... Terminus.

Shaped by a unique vision, GLACTIC EMPIRES is a brilliant mosaic of a quarter century of the best writing in science fiction. It is both a chronicle of man's outward move from Earth and a collection of fourteen original views of space conquest. Volume One tells of galactic war and the rise of an Empire, Volume Two follows the Empire's destiny and man's ultimate destiny in space...

Neither of which makes sense when you see what he has done. Of all people you would list as needing to be rescued from obscurity, Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke would probably be last and second last on the list. Even more so in 1976.

Some other decent choices here though, and he divides the book up into a few sections, the last being on medicine in space.
