Whereas Wyndham may now be best remembered for his novel Day of the Triffids clearly his strenghth as a story teller lay in the short story rather than the novel These stories the longest of which is thirty pages each of which starts on the notion of what if are delightfully entertaining thrilling or disturbing depending on the tone of the particular storyCHRONOCLASM It s the story of a man faced with sudden knowledge of the immediate and distant future and his willing participation for good and bad to see the future play out as it has been described to him Though the threat of a temporal paradox is presented the story ends up playing out as if paradoxes cannot come into being leaving the reader to ponder if man really has as much free will as he thinks he doesTIME TO RESTThis is one of three stories themed around Mars Here the Martians are native humanoids tall graceful and cultured The main character is an expatriot Earthman living the sort of life one of Hemingway s characters would have lived if he had written science fiction It s really just a lovely mood pieceMETEORMeteor plays on the notions of perception and assumption as it follows the disasterous attempt of a slow ship to colonize a far away worldSURVIVALSurvival is the closest these stories get to pure horror It has all of the classic themes of man s inhumanity to man and monster within that is released when one s existence is threatened It is the second story that features Mars but here Mars is an unattainable goalPAWLEY S PEEPHOLESThis story is another time travel piece but is much lighthearted than Chronoclasm What would happen if people from the future decided to turn the past into one giant theme park How would the citizens of the past reactOPPOSITE NUMBERHere s another take on time travel This story works around the idea of different futures arising from different outcomes to decisions Can true love sort things out when fates goes horribly pear shapedPILLAR TO POSTWyndham s writing here reminded me most of HG Wells s social comentary science fiction espcially that of The Time Machine Here a man gets a brief chance to live in the future when he is mistakenly transmitted into a distant future Although the future society is no Eutopia it is better than his life in the past How hard will he fight to keep his future life and do they really want him in the futureDUMB MARTIANIf the woman in this story weren t a Martian and I think she was a human but of a multi generation Martian lineage the story would just be a cautionary tale against domestic abuseCOMPASSION CIRCUITThere are a couple classic Twilight Zone episodes that are similar to this story of man and machine and man becoming machine It s not particularly uniue or clever but still chillingWILD FLOWERThe last story of the group is by far the weakest The book ends on a whimper Just sing Where Have All the Flowers Gone and leave it at that
