An interesting set of stories. I picked this up because I wanted to read Childhood's End. but was actually disappointing by the story. I found the short stories and Earthlight to be much more interesting. I had previously read Tales From The White Hart, and didn't care for them, so my review ignores them.

I read this during the summer at the cottage up in SW Michigan. Some of the stories and novellas had been read before during childhood.

Another omnibus of Clarke's work. Excellent. Contains Childhood's End, which is Clarke's ultimate masterpiece in my opinion.
