I just received Robots Have No Tails, the first volume in Paizo's revamped Planet Stories line. I've only barely begun reading the five short stories included in the book, so I can't say much about them -- though, being Henry Kuttner efforts, I have little doubt that I'll enjoy them greatly. However, I can say that I am absolutely in love with the new format of the series. The books are slightly larger and thinner now, with a two-column layout that recalls the pulp magazines in which these stories appeared. So does the paper, for that matter, which, though sturdy, reminds me of old-fashioned magazines, as do the illustrations that begin each tale.
All in all, I think the changes are ones of which I greatly approve. They give Planet Stories a "pulpier" feel that I think better suits their subject matter than the trade paperback format of the earlier volumes. I have already found Robots Have No Tails much more readable and portable than its predecessors, which is terrific, as Planet Stories is what I read while on the subway or in the backseat of a car. It's a pity the series has gone bimonthly and I hope that's not because of poor sales. Planet Stories is a remarkable line of books and I'd hate to see it come to an end anytime soon. People are finally starting to give the pioneers of genre fiction their due, so we need Planet Stories more than ever.
