A collection of stunning short stories from the most acclaimed Science Fiction author of any generation. Arthur C Clarke is without question the world's best-known and most celebrated science fiction writer. His career, spanning more than sixty years, is one of unequalled success. Clarke has always been celebrated for his clear prophetic vision, which is fully on display in this audiobook, but there are also many stories which show his imagination in full flight, to the distant future and to far-flung star systems. The third volume in a collection of five.

Clarke is fantastic when he takes us to new worlds, distant futures or ancient history seen in a new way. I simply love it. But it seems that in this third collection something new was introduced: humour. And it comes across as hoplessly nerdish - if I smile it is the overbearing smile you put on your face when the guy who desperately wants to be funny cracks another lame joke. Still I am going on to vil IV and hope Clarke is back on track!
