    One thought on “Tales of Ten Worlds

    1. Stephanie on said:

      This is a collection of 15 short stories - well the last one is really a novelette - ranging from humorous, to thought-provoking, to melancholy. What comes out clearly in this collection is the breadth of Clarke's story-telling ability, his unique way of pulling you into each tale. Most people who are not "sci-fi" readers only know Clarke by 2001 - A Space Odyssey but he is so much more than that.I enjoyed every story but the following stand out:Summertime on Icarus - Clarke's description of the [...]

      How did I live this long without reading Clark? He's the king of the killer final sentence.

      Arthur C. Clarke'ın her zamanki mühendis keskinliğiyle yazılmış gayet güzel öyküler. En son öyküyü biraz uzun ve sıkıcı bulduğumu söylemem lazım, ama diğer öyküler keyifle okunuyor.

      La primera vez que leí ciencia ficción clásica, fue con el libro El fin de la infancia, de Arthur C. Clarke. Hasta el día de hoy, diría que si uno quiere empezar a comprender como es que la ciencia ficción llego a ser lo que es, tiene que leer ese libro. Hoy, por suerte, también puedo decir que si uno quiere adentrarse en este mundo, puede empezar sin dudas por Relatos de diez mundos.No es una sola historia, sino varias, contadas de la manera mas simple que la redacción lo permite (y ese [...]

      This is a collection of short stories from the master storyteller himself. The stories are varied and different and of course with the sparkle of brilliance that you can expect from Arthur C. Clarke. A good read for anyone and a must read for sifi fans.

    7. Eddie Villanueva on said:

      Some pretty cool short stories about space and sci-fi stuff.

    8. Benn Allen on said:

      15 well-crafted and well-written stories by one of the masters of Science Fiction, "Tales of Ten Worlds" is a pleasure to read. These are some of Arthur C. Clarke's best short stories. Highlights include ""I Remember Babylon", "An Ape About the House", "Death and the the Senator", "Trouble With Time" and the novella, "The Road to the Sea".

    9. Emrullah Koyunlu on said:

      It wasn't a bad book in general, but its quite weak compared to Clarke's other works. Avoidance recommended.

    10. Scott on said:

      My first taste of hard science fiction. Of course after that I was hooked for life! I think I was about 11 when I bought it. That was around 1973. I didn't know anything about Arthur C. Clarke, The title intrigued me (wow, 10 worlds for 75 cents!) and I liked the cover. It showed space suited figures floating in a pink void. What happened to all that great cover art? Anyway, even though many of the short stories were too mature for me, I still got a foothold into the genre and I'm still a fan 40 [...]

      Mi primer libro de Arthur C. Clarke. Me ha dejado buenas sensaciones en general, con relatos muy interesantes y otros intrascendentes.Por norma, el interés sube cuanto más páginas tiene la historia, excepción hecha del larguísimo y algo aburrido último relato.Similar en su escritura a Asimov (sin llegar al nivel del maestro), tiene buenas ideas y una mente racional con las que plasmarlas. Recomendable para aficcionados a la ciencia ficción.

    12. John Isaacson on said:

      The opening story "I remember Babylon" blew my mind! I totally thought it was real. Arthur C. Clarke refers to himself by his own name as he narrates this story about meeting a man at a party who predicts the rise of television as propaganda and mid-control. Rife with historical references, this story seems more fact than fiction. Arthur C. Clarke is a storyteller of the highest order, not to mention a visionary.

    13. Annelin Kristiane on said:

      Enkelte historier skilte seg positivt ut (den om den kunstneriske apen og den om liv på Venus f.eks.) men flere var småkjedelige og tok forever(seelv om det bare var korte historier, og de egentlig ikke var vanskelige å lese) å komme seg gjennom. Anbefales derfor bare for de som er spesielt interessert i klassisk sci-fi.

    14. Daniorte on said:

      Relatos cortos bastante escuetos y bastante lights. No hay ningún relato que te marque y en todos se me ha quedado la sensación de "¿Y ya está?". Son cuentecillos para matar el tiempo entre esperas en determinados momentos pero ya esta. Me parece a mi que el relato corto no es para nada lo mejor de Clarke

    15. Christi on said:

      Even though we're not experiencing all the space travel that was referenced in the book for this time period, AC rarely disappoints. Some of those stories were thrilling, page turners! Thank goodness they haven't been ruined by making them into movies.

    16. Jenna on said:

      Arthur C. Clarke's fifteen fantastic shorty story. The master of science fiction, and it will fascinate any earthbound explorer of the orbit. :)

    17. Ron Stetson on said:

      many of the stories are very dated, but what is important is the lessons contained in them

    18. Nick on said:

      Great collection of sci-fi. "Hate", The one about Venusian life, and the one about a cute ol' dawg were my favorites though I can't be bothered to look up the other two names at the moment.

    19. Peter on said:

      Short stories not my favourite. Yet this science fiction has won me over.A master in his class.

    20. Robin Gilbert on said:

      "The Road to the Sea"; one of the best short stories I have read.

    21. Nithyanand on said:

      An excellent anthology of his short stories. Not his best anthology -- those would be The Wind from the Sun, and The Sentinel, respectively. But this is still vintage Clarke.

    22. Jesse Lambert on said:

      Another great collection of short stories from the late great Arthur C. Clarke

    23. Ian on said:

      A fine example of the pure mastery that was Arthur C Clarke. He left his mark on liturate with everyone of his stories and his spirit lives on through his life's work.
