Olaf Stapledon, philosopher, novelist, educator and social activist, had an imagination unlike that of any other figure in modernist literature. This broad anthology includes a generous sample of his fictional gems, as well as other writings including essays, poems and letters.

Whether you're new to Olaf Stapledon's work or a veteran reader, you will find much of interest in this volume. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and personal reflections are all here; Robert Crossley has done a wonderful job as editor. My personal favorites were the short story "The Man Who Became a Tree" and the essay "Interplanetary Man?" A true delight from start to finish.

5.0 von 5 SternenBest introduction to Stapledon that I've seen30. September 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Recently I have become quite acquainted with the work of Olaf Stapledon... no, I haven't read it all yet! But this was a terrific introduction. The Cordwainer Smith Foundation (of which I am a member) recently created an award for science fiction writers whose works are worthy of rediscovery. Olaf Stapledon was chosen by a distinguished panel of science fiction writers and editors to win the first award. So I read much of this book, among others. The range of Stapledon's mind is astonishing and beautiful, with wry humor and more than a little tragedy.
