    1. Fifteen short stories from one of my favourite writers, every single one of which inspired thoughts that lasted longer than the stories themselves. Allow yourself some time to savour and mull these over.

    2. First published 1957. Doesn't appear to have had an American editionC: isfdb/cgi-bin/pli?3Neal Asher's retro review-essay: theskinner/2017/0

    3. Nice collection by Aldiss, maybe the most criminally underrated uk sf novelist here in the states. His early work is on display here and there are some gems, including my favorite, "Psyclops".What distinguishes Aldiss' work at this early stage is the flashes of experimentalism and psychological insights he would later become well known for. Here in approx. 1956 Aldiss is already resisting genre conventions and cliche character choices. Much like contemporary John Christopher, Aldiss embodies the [...]

    4. Originally published in the 1950s, many of the stories in Space, Time and Nathaniel could be said to prefigure the New Wave Science Fiction movement of the 1960s. Although Aldiss' later work scaled much greater heights, the best stories in this collection show his playful and poetic sides. "The Failed Men" is a melancholy piece about a relief effort to help humanity of the distant future, the failed men. But its core is an investigation into the problem of linguistics and translation when you do [...]

    5. This was my first short story collection by Aldiss I have read although I have read quite a few of his novels. It is a collection of his earliest published tales, all of which were first published in the mid 50's. They definitely have an early Aldiss feel to them. Often they feel rushed and lack the finesse that he would later aquire as a writer.Thematically they are hugely varied with some very interesting ideas and concepts explored. Tales of alien beings, future wars, satires, dystopias, apoc [...]

    7. Upon arriving in Oslo, Norway to visit Mother upon graduation from seminary, I hastened to find a source for English language books. Fortunately, there was a small paperback resale shop nearby with several racks containing a disproportionate number of science fiction books published by American and English companies. Aldiss I knew already, so this collection of his early fiction was a clear, early choice. Later, however, as I'd read one after another, returning them for more, I got into unknown [...]

    8. A few stories from this are still lodged in my head, but the most memorable bit for me is actually Brian's prologue, where he talks about the increasing acceptance of Sci-fi as a genre.

    9. I ve recently found a list of books I read almost thirty years ago, some are still clear in my mind (The Chrysalids, Brave New World) and other like this one I have completely forgotten.

    10. I thought some of the short stories had interesting concepts and enjoyable to read whereas others seemed somewhat tedious. In three years time, no doubt I will have forgotten them all.
