4.0 étoiles sur 5 The collected stories 29 novembre 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
No less than 104 short novels, some rather hard to find, gathered in one book.
“Only philosophers were interested in unanswerable questions” quoted a character in one of these novels. So are ancient myths and modern science fictions. Melancholic rêveries and meditations reminiscent of Borges‘s best novels, speculative assertions with the same fragrance one can find in Conan Doyle’s late novels, when drawn to spirituality, the creator of Sherlock Holmes questioned the same mystery, sarcastic but nevertheless humoristic observations of human trivialities, all of these multiple facets of Arthur C Clarke’s world are the threads that weave together the frame of these novels. Clarke is rather pessimistic about humanity’s fate, a race smart enough to travel to outer space, but not wise enough to prevent itself from digging its own grave. Is mankind doomed, leaving room in the future to some more intelligent or more ethical species? Most probably so. But there is at least one thing that could be salvageable. In « Dog Star », an astronaut on a Moon base awakes from a dream in which Laika, his dog, is barking. Just in time for him to take prompt actions and escape from a lunar tremor. He then realized that she could not actually have saved him as she did years ago, when she alerted him of an earthquake, saving his life. For they are separated by a barrier no one could cross. Laika died 5 years ago. It was his never sleeping subconscious remembrance of his dog that made him dream of her, barking, as she did the first time when she saved him. If love is eternal, where does its spirit transmigrate when the corpse falls into dust? To outer space? Or into another dimension? “Space of several billions of dimensions has been frequently postulated in sub-atomic physics” said one character in “Technical error”.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The single best collection of SF short stories in existence 20 juin 2007
Par Roger J. Buffington - Publié sur
These are stories by Arthur C. Clarke mainly written during the "Golden Age of SF" during the 1940s through 1960s era. There are many in here which are simply classics, to which the discerning reader will return many times. Most of these stories are friends of my youth, and I spent many hours entertaining myself reading these stories, in a time when there were no computers, internet, and only three television channels (and only one TV in the house!)

The list of five-star classics in this rather large piece is too long to list here in its entirety. To name just a few, "Superiority," "Rescue Party," "The Parasite," The Songs of Distant Earth" (later made into a fine novel), "Dog Star" (have some tissue handy for this one!), and many others.

Clarke at his best probably mastered the short-story format better than most, or perhaps any, of the other giants of SF's Golden Age. The best of these stories have a wistful, poetic thread about them, coupled with Clarke's unbounding imagination and often startling speculations about technology and Mankind's future.

You don't want to miss this one. It belongs in every SF aficionado's library.

This book has many of the Arthur C Clarke short stories in it, and they reflect the style of Sci Fi stories of the time (1930's to 1950's). I have read some of them before in printed version, but it is great to have them in Kindle format. Many I have not read for a while, and many others I have not read before. Arthur C Clarke was one of the greats in Sci Fi writing and many of his stories are still relevant today. The only disappointment for me was that the short story "The Deep Range" was both a short story and a novel. I have read the novel earlier and it is much better than the short story. The same applies to "Childhood's End", but I have the novel as well. Otherwise, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the writings of Arthur C Clarke.

I had been looking for a collection by AC Clarke that contained "The Nine Billion Names of God". It was always a favorite, but I was unable to find a book for purchase that contained it. It is a huge book, it will take me a few months to completely read this collection. I am looking forward to rereading other stories in the book.
