Arthur C. Clarke was surely the most celebrated science-fiction author of recent times. He was - with H. G. Wells, Issac Asimov, and Robert A. Heinlein - one of the writers who defined the genre.

At the dawn of the year 2001, Sir Arthur C. Clarke cooperated in the preparation of a massive, definitive edition of his collected shorter works, entitled The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke. Earthlight & Other Stories offers selections from this extraordinary collection. In addition to the title story, included in this volume are Nemesis, Time's Arrow, The Road to the Sea, The Sentinel, Holiday on the Moon, and the first of the White Hart stories, Silence Please. Read by William Windom, Samantha Eggar, Michael York, Christopher Cazenove, Gabrielle De Cuir, Arte Johnson, Roald Martinsen, Steven Memel, and John Rubenstein.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 8/22/2010

    " Awesome straight up, old school sci fi. Set on the moon, Earth and its colonies (Mars and Venus) are on the brink of war over access to natural resources. I love to see what people in the '50s imagined the future might be like.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 valpal | 6/27/2010

    " A little dated (people smoke cigarettes on the moon!) but still fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Weathervane | 3/13/2010

    " A good book, a short book, a book that does what it does well and doesn't overstay its welcome. Characters are bland, but no worries, because the plot, atmosphere, and scientific concepts make things fun.

    A solid entry from Clarke. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pf87 | 3/7/2010

    " A cast of indistinguishable characters on a dated vision of the 21st-century Moon, in an alleged mystery that will have the reader asking "So what?" with every non-development. There are some quotable bits and a relatively exciting finale but overall this early Clarke work is a rare dud. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ginevra | 8/9/2009

    " I have not read much AC Clark, so I can't say how this compares to his other books. This doesn't seem particularly clever or inspired. Like much sci fi in the 50s, it uses a futuristic scenario to explore the moral choices one faces in war. I don't think this book really sood the test of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 6/5/2009

    " Another fine moon based book. Much like "A Fall of Moondust." "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jared | 6/12/2008

    " As per usual, Clarke has interesting ideas and a book as exciting as bending cardboard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlene | 1/29/2008

    " Neat from a vintage sci-fi view. Including extensive science-y/physics-y details and an all-male cast. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/1/2008

    " Classic Clarke from the classic years of Sci Fi before Hobbit Envy destroyed the genre. This is Clarke at his thoughtful & ultimately optimistic best. A quick read for a plane flight! "
