Cordwainer Smith is the pen name of Mr. Paul M. A. Linebarger, who lived a comparatively short (1913 - 1966) and difficult life. He was educated in China, Germany and USA. He loose one eye in an accident being a child. Had a PH degree in Political Sciences, was a university professor and worked undercover for CIA. At the same time he wrote fascinating sci-fi stories.
My first contact with the author's stories was "Alpha Ralpha Boulevard" (included in this volume). It was obvious for me that this was a fragment of a greater story, full of mysterious and provoking ideas as the Rediscovery of Man, the Eketeli and so on. I was captivated by the imagery and searched for more works from Cordwainer Smith. Little by little they were appearing in different sci-fi magazines and short stories collections.
This book contains eight stories, being the key ones "Mark Elf", "Alpha Ralpha Boulevard" and "The Game of Rat & Dragon", giving the reader a broad inkling to Cordwainer's universe.
Recently all Cordwainer Smith tales has been published in Spanish in a four volume edition from another editorial house.
This is a wonderful sample from an unjustly underrated author.
