Six decades of fascinating stories from the legendary "colossus of science fiction" and creator of 2001: A Space Odyssey gathered in one compendium (The New Yorker).

Arthur C. Clarke, along with H. G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, and Robert A. Heinlein, was a definitive voice in twentieth century science fiction. A prophetic thinker, undersea explorer, and "one of the true geniuses of our time," Clarke not only won the highest science fiction honors, the Nebula and Hugo Awards, but also received nominations for an Academy Award and the Nobel Peace Prize, and was knighted for his services to literature (Ray Bradbury).

Now, more than one hundred works of the sci-fi master's short fiction are available in the "single-author collection of the decade" (Booklist, starred review). This definitive edition includes early work such as "Rescue Party" and "The Lion of Comarre," classics like "The Nine Billion Names of God" and "The Sentinel" (which was the kernel of the later novel and movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey), and later works including "A Meeting with Medusa" and "The Hammer of God."

Encapsulating one of the great science fiction careers of all time, this immense volume "displays the author's fertile imagination and irrepressible enthusiasm for both good storytelling and impeccable science" (Library Journal).

"One of the most astounding imaginations ever encountered in print." —The New York Times

"As his Collected Stories helps to demonstrate, there has been no popular writer since the days of C S Lewis and Charles Williams whose disposition is more nakedly apocalyptic, who takes greater pleasure in cradling eternity in the palm of his hand." —The Guardian

The Audible copy paired with it for $7.95 appears to match the book at 51 hours. Yikes.

Look over the page, and click some links, looks like tons of scifi collection books for around $1-$2. (Especially PKD collections).

Just last night I decided to get into reading again and decided to start with some classics: Childhood's End (unfortunately not in this) and then I'm gonna get Stranger in a Strange Land, but I've been reading the author's original is better. Can anyone attest to this? I loved the mass market (which I assumed I read as a kid), so I don't wanna add an extra 250 pages, especially if it hasn't been through an editor and is still full typical "author delirium."

I've only read the authors version of SIASL, but I can confirm I love it. Haven't read a ton of sci-fi, but it's my favorite thus far.

Childhood's End is definitely not a short story Smilie
There is a TV version of Childhood's End, if you haven't watched it.

Yes, the audible version is 51 hours long but most stories are about 20 to 30 minutes and are great for commute. I believe it was on sale earlier as well.

Get it. I recall liking "Captive Market" or similarly named title. I also really loved Childhood's End.

Do not watch the TV series if you liked the book.
