Read full description of the books:
"Time In Advance" is a solid example of William Tenn's ironic approach in his science fiction. Don't be fooled by the title; this is not a time travel story. Rather it refers to a world in which a person can serve "time in advance" for a crime which s/ he intends to commit afterwards.
Well, suppose the crime is murder?!
This novelette has been in numerous anthologies but I would advise reading it in the Kindle edition of "The Galaxy Project", a series of science fiction stories associated wit the famous Galaxy science fiction magazine. This edition includes excellent additional material about the author, work, and the context of its publication.

Read information about the authorWilliam Tenn is the pseudonym of Philip Klass. He was born in London on May 9, 1920, and emigrated to the United States with his parents before his second birthday. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York. After serving in the United States Army as a combat engineer in Europe, he held a job as a technical editor with an Air Force radar and radio laboratory and was employed by Bell Labs.
He began writing in 1945 and wrote academic articles, essays, two novels, and more than 60 short stories.
His first story, 'Alexander the Bait' was published in Astounding Science Fiction in 1946. Stories like 'Down Among the Dead Men', 'The Liberation of Earth', and 'The Custodian' quickly established him as a fine, funny, and thoughtful satirist.
Tenn is best-known as a satirist, and by works such as "On Venus Have We Got a Rabbi" and "Of Men and Monsters."
His stories and articles were widely anthologized, a number of them in best-of-the-year collections. From 1966, he was a Professor Emeritus of English and Comparative Literature at The Pennsylvania State University, where he taught, among other things, a popular course on science fiction.
In 1999, he was honored as Author Emeritus by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America at their annual Nebula Awards Banquet.
