Almost by definition an anthology is both good in parts, and not-so-good in other parts. This collection is no different. Even though it is supposed to be a curated collection from the complete short stories collection, some of them should not have made the cut. Some of them were great, others suffered from an almost monotonic narration style that did not really sit well with me.
Definitely dated and not always well-thought-out.
Great collection is ACC's shirt stories. Enjoyable reading, it is true to say theat they don't make them the way they used to. Clever stories rather than whizzy stories.
Intelligent, hard sf. Clarke's vision of the future is engineer-centric and funny. It's still worth a read.
