It's Blish's centennial year (1921-1975). Here he imagined you could go much faster than light - if you had the mass of a city. This is the last in the Cities in Flight series. Is it the best? What about "SF stories never end"?

 

Classics of SF at Loscon 47 By John Hertz: We'll discuss three Classics of Science Fiction at Loscon XLVII, one discussion each. Come to as many as you like. You'll be welcome to join in. Our working definition is "A classic is a work that survives its own time. After the currents which might have sustained It have changed, it remains, and is seen to be worthwhile for itself." If you have a better definition, bring it. Each of the three is famous in a different way. Each may be more interesting now than when first published. Have you read them? Have you re-read them?
