Review Text

Three handsful (well, 15) collected from Clarke's magazine appearances wander from a dog's warning to his master to misty conception of worlds to vanish, and offer a kaleidoscope of matters beyond human ken. An area with too much heat; the first baby born in space; kittens in a spaceship locker; a dead astronaut; an abacus saving men when machines fail; an ape excelling in painting; death by astronomy; crime on Mars; a killing by sunlight - these vary theme and telling satisfactorily.
