I've owned this book in a variety of formats over the years. I love short stories, particularly those of Arthur C Clarke, Stephen King and Roald Dahl. Of those three greats, Clarke is definitely the one that makes me think the most; his stories aren't just entertaining and engaging, they're witty, way ahead of their time, and often motivate me to read further into the science behind the narrative.
I bought the Kindle version of this classic compendium, spanning the author's entire lifetime of short story work, recently, hoping that it'd be a nice way of getting reacquainted with familiar classics that I remembered fondly, as well as enabling me to re-familiarise myself with works that I may have forgotten. I wasn't disappointed. Unlike some other Kindle purchases of classic books I've made, I was delighted to find this particular volume had been expertly-transferred to the Kindle format, with none of the typos, poor formatting, lack of clear fonts and absence of e-book navigational support that some other otherwise worthy classic literary works I've purchased have sadly suffered from.
This book is a great way to pass fifteen minutes before bedtime, a boring train journey, or rainy day. I can't recommend it highly enough.
