I never really got into Arthur C. Clarke in my early days of voracious sci fi reading. I always preferred monsters and magic really, and the writing style is plain, with the plot and the science & technology as the highlights. But this is a great little collection of short stories that surprised me with how much I enjoyed them. The few that play with race and history also surprised me, and the last story, "A Meeting with Medusa" about the massive and incredible lifeforms of Jupiter as witnessed by someone half man half machine? I loved it. I also loved how these stories echo into some of my favourite and more contemporary fiction, like Iain M. Banks and Kim Stanley Robinson.
