The only thing I can’t tell you is which ones short stories or Norstrilia to read first. It makes “Scanners Live in Libris seem like one of those small books with the chewy covers that babies like in comparison. Once again we get a lot of very mysterious time-travel and shifting around. The bottom line though is: They tell you how important the story you’re about to read was to the timeline of mankind.

Such a great story and again The writing, as in almost all great science fiction, can seem a bit stilted at time, however the stories and ideas paint the only future I could even begin to believe if mankind were to exist another years.

No one was disappointed! What kind of name is Cordwainer, anyway? The Rediscovery of Man is set in the Instrumentality of Mankind universe, one with many mysteries and insights. Cordwainer Smith is a writer like none other.
