The Other Side Of The Sky

The NUS Science Library has a small sci-fi collection. It’s time to dig in! The Other Side Of The Sky is the first work by Arthur C. Clarke that I’ve read now. It is a compilation of 28 of his earlier sci-fi short stories. The stories are all really short, each not more than 3-5 pages (except for the last one The Songs Of Distant Earth which is a long romantic one). The premises of the stories are quaint, some are even funny. The descriptions of our future space travel is quite simply brilliant in its simplicity and inventiveness. Infact, each story brings about something new that I haven’t seen before in a movie/book or even dreamt of. This guy must be really good to think of so many ideas. A must read.
