Review: Reach for Tomorrow

User Review  - DM - Goodreads

Simple and engaging short stories. I always love reading Clarke's stuff. I miss this style of sci-fi writing in today's world. It's all about emotions and explosions and not what it's supposed to be about, exploration of possibilities. The celebration of science. Read full review

A superb collection of stories with creepy overtones. The scientific imaginings are first rate and given the age of the stories, they hold up well. Read full review
