Clarke rales high -among' wrilers of science ficlion. He wrote.these.stories in the 396Qs, an era of many scientific accomplishments that revealed soirie truth in what was the fantasy of science fiction. C i a r - k ' e ' s · imagination slre.lches the imagination of the reader"-to remote parts of the universe, where curious men would willingly venture from (heir familiar habitat of solid earth to see the other side of nature. The author packs these, little stories with thrilling details of explorations of the universe, and rescue efforts to release men caught in the jaws of powerful elements. In "Malestrom II," Ihe reader imagines himself drifting through space wilh a distressed spaceman .who is depending on ground" crew technicians to return him to' a safe reunion with his wife and loved ones. He rc ; ceives sharp hut encouraging directions to j u m p clear of his space capsule and await rescue; that this is no time to gel neurotic. Another thriller is "The Crue: Sky."
