What an amazing man that Arthur C. Clarke!
My greatest memories of him are of his science fiction which I began reading as soon as I discovered scifi. He and Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov stirred my very fertile imagination to such a degree that it is hard to imagine what life would have been without them. A film that influenced me much later in life is: 2001: A Space Odyssey and in many ways, it is still with me today.
But the task at hand is to comment on and review the collection. These stories are some of his best short stories, examples of a style so reflective of the early days of science fiction. Yet they are timeless, fresh, and still relevant in many ways. I especially appreciate the convenience of this ebook compilation of his earliest works.
