    I don t think there s a better book by Arthur C Clarke than this These stories are taut, memorable, moving, full of the pain of one form or another of exile Sure, there are one or two amusing throwaways, but has there ever been a poignant story of homesickness than If I Forget Thee, Oh Earth , or a bleakly ironic memorial to human f...

    I picked up an Arthur C Clarke book after many years, and got reminded why i got interested in sci fi in the first place A very good selection of short stories that were written before humans entered space and even now ensnaring readers into the genre of science fiction Timeless

    A collection of some of Clarke s older SF stories, including The Sentinel, which is the story that set the tone for 2001 All these stories are pretty good, although not the best that Clarke wrote A few have twists that are easy to see coming, but overall I enjoyed them quite a lot.

    It s good to read some of the works of the forefathers of science fiction It s been decades since I ve read any Clarke and it s like visiting an old friend These are 11 tales originally published between 1949 and 1953 and are, of course, of varying quality individually Combined, they re fascinating in style and content and a joy to read.Most of these stories aren t about laser guns or space battles although I enjoy that kind of science fiction but about the human condition.Second Dawn This is a cautionary tale A race of psychics discover a psychic weapon of mass destruction in war time In their horror, they turn away from it and the knowledge that lead to it and instead down a path of physical sciences.If I Forget Thee, Oh Earth A child looks upon the radioactive wastes that is the Earth from the relative safety of the Moon.Breaking Strain A spaceship loses its oxygen reserves.History Lesson Long after humanity is gone, what will be found to show who we were and what will be made of us Superiority A military tribunal holds a reminder that superior technology and superior h...

    I thought it was a pretty good collection of short stories Did not feel dated and some of the ideas were still original.

    Great Collection of Short Stories There are 11 short stories in this collection and all of them are truly exceptional but 3 really stand out The first of course is Sentinel which is the basis for the movie and eventually the book, 2001 Breaking Strain is a great book discussing the moral implications of two men trapped alone in a space ship when it is quite obvious that if there was only one of them they could survive With interesting commentary on how people live under pressure and what actions they take, this is an exceptional piece of work But my favorite is probably Second Dawn this story discusses what happens to a group of aliens without hands but with enormous mental powers when they encounter a group of aliens with hands The interaction of the civilizations and cultures is well described, and though I think Clarke may be taking too friendly an approach to such a meeting it would be nice if all civilizational clashes re...

    First at all it s important to insist that these stories were written than sixty years ago, an excellent reminder of how technology has changed our lives and our perception of normal in this short period Clarke was a visionary, he was capable of understand how technological advancements could drive our development But even so he was not able to foreseen what miniaturization of transistors would bring to our society Stories bring a bit of everything, wars, travel in space, new civilizations A few things negative that I found in the book He s not rid of smoking habit and portrays people in space hooked to the vice Coming again to computers, he didn t imagine that one day an enormous computing power will be possible with a tiny device and with a minimum consumption of energy In one of the stories a contender in the war gets help from a kind of artificial intelligence, a device able to drive the battle But the device is enormous, it is built in a huge ship and hundreds of men are necessary to operate and maintain it This is related with communications also In a story a report is missing because the ship that was taking it suffered a delay or a problem Today the...
