Here on this island we’re trying to save something of humanity’s independence, its artistic traditions. We’ve no hostility towards the Overlords: we simply want to be left alone to go our own way. When they destroyed the old nations and the way of life man had known since the beginning of history, they swept away […]

«Once and fur all,» said Stormgren angrily, «let me make my position perfectly clear. Karellen is working for a united world, and I’ll do nothing to help his enemies. What his ultimate plans may be, I don’t know, but I believe that they are good.»

«What real proof have we of that?»

«All his actions, ever since […]

The conference room was always crowded for these weekly meetings, but today it was so closely packed that the reporters had difficulty in writing. For the hundredth time, they grumbled to each other at Karellen’s conservatism and lack of consideration. Anywhere else in the world they could have brought TV cameras, tape recorders, […]

Rc – Clarke – Childhood – 096 – What brains they had

Por |diciembre 8th, 2016|

The average working week was now about twenty hours – but those twenty hours were no sinecure. There was little work left of a routine, mechanical nature. Men’s minds were too valuable to waste on tasks that a few thousand transistors, some photoelectric cells, and a cubic metre of printed circuits could perform. There were […]

given instructions for installing the necessary radio equipment,
and issued their orders through the mouth of the Secretary-General.

The Soviet delegate had quite correctly pointed out,
at considerable length and upon innumerable occasions,
that this was not in accordance with […]
