Frederik Pohl recommends
Who Goes There?
Who Goes There? (1938)
John W Campbell
"He was the greatest editor science fiction ever had. Take away John Campbell and the whole scene changes; others have contributed to the growth of modern science fiction, John caused it."
The Black Flame
The Black Flame (1939)
Stanley G Weinbaum
"Stanley G. Weinbaum's name deserves to rank with those of Wells and Heinlein - and no more than a handful of others - as among the great shapers of modern science fiction. Sadly, most of the marvelous works he produced in his all too brief career were in the form of short stories and novelettes, and so are overlooked by many of today's readers. Which is all the more reason to rejoice that Tachyon Publications has brought his novel, The Black Flame, back into print for us to read - and moreover, for the first time, it is published just as Weinbaum wrote it. "
The World Swappers
The World Swappers (1959)
John Brunner
"Very enjoyable, very competent."
Driftglass: Ten Tales of Speculative Fiction
Driftglass: Ten Tales of Speculative Fiction (1971)
Samuel R Delany
"Delany may be the only authentic genius among us."
For Us, the Living: A Comedy of Customs
For Us, the Living: A Comedy of Customs (2003)
Robert Heinlein
"The wonderful thing about For Us, The Living is that in it we can see the seeds of many of Robert Heinlein's great later works, starting with the first notion for 'The Roads Must Roll' and going on to cover much of his lifelong thinking on politics and society. I'm very glad I read it."

Transcendental (2013)
James E Gunn
"His best yet."
