I wish I liked this because I like how Wyndham brings a certain kind of gentleness to sci fiSadly in this collection the gentleness flips towards boredom a few too many times There are uite a few interesting ideas here which then get suffocated with some real stuffy fuddy duddy writingChronoclasm 1 starTime To Rest 35 starsMeteor 3 starsSurvival 3 starsPawley s Peepholes 35 starsOpposite Number 2 starsPillar To Post 4 starsDumb Martian 35 starsCompassion Circuit 25 starsWild Flower 2 stars 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 ust 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 th I will never tire of reading Wyndham His writing is witty original and thought provoking The themes and ideas he explores are still relevant today This book is no exception With 10 short stories all of the above come uickly and relentlessly There were no huge twists or surprises in the stories it is easy to see where they are leading but it is the details and atmosphere that kept me reading Such a good book I m tempted to say that John Wyndham s short stories are better than his novels The ten in this collection range from average to awesome You ve got robots time travel space travel and Martians all written in Wyndham s accessible British style A couple of them could easily have been made into Twilight Zone episodes Seeds of Time won t make you forget Day of the Triffids or Midwich Cuckoos but it s definitely worth a read Varied short stories by John Wyndham some from before WW2 and some decades later and still fresh 20 years since I last read themIf Wyndham makes you think of spooky children "MIDWICH CUCKOOS AND TRIFFIDS PREPARE FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND "Cuckoos and triffids prepare for something different and think better There is plenty of variety here and some great ideasChronoclasm is a thoughtful non action time travel paradoxTime to Rest is a pastoral tale where a human loner travels the Martian canals living a tinker s lifeMeteor is a pre war adventure Although basic plot is obvious from the start it presents an interesting slant on how one s insular perspective life experience body skews one s objectivity and ability to interpret what is around us when we are in an unfamiliar situationSurvival seems like a clich but of course it predates most of the sci fi films it brings to mind and it has a good twist Like other Wyndham works some of the characters express very misogynistic views albeit perhaps typical of the time It also has a prescient insight into the power of tabloid media and the power of celebrity as in Midwich CuckoosPawley s Peepholes is the story I remembered most vividly from my first reading of this collection It is a comic slant on time travel with satire of the media and its approach to truthOpposite Number is about parallel universes with an or.

Iginal ending Pillar to Post is like Meteor about disorientation when one cannot even begin to understand one s circumstances but it is a complex narrative It also posits that the end of the world could be that it ust died of government paternalism because there would be so much order there would be no need to adapt Life is an accident and maybe survival is tooDumb Martian is good because finally a man with no respect for women gets his comeuppanceCompassion Circuit is a very short exploration of the relationship between humans and personal robotsWild Flower is completely unlike the others being rather twee like its titleAnd after all these years I think Pawley s Peepholes is still my favourite though perhaps not the best This is a short story collection that is I dare say much less famous than Wyndham s novels It is however worth hunting down if you like those novels As is often the case with short story collections The Seeds of Time shows greater range than all of the author s novels together although Wyndham was ust one of several pseudonyms used by this author and I haven t read any of the others THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN CURTAILED IN PROTEST AT GOODREADS CENSORSHIP POLICYSee the complete review here Sci fi as it used to beThough always categorised as sci fi John Wyndham was probably one of the least science based writers of the genre There are very few gadgets in his stories and even when technology is being used in order to time travel for example he doesn t usually bother to give any kind of made up science to explain the working he simply expects his reader to accept it as possible and real His stories might take the reader towards the fantasy side of sci fi on occasion but at heart they re about humanity and Wyndham s contemporary society even if they may be set on Mars in some distant futureThis collection originally published in 1956 brings together ten stories ranging from comedy to horror with touches of romance and occasionally social commentary built in There s no real common theme this is a collection where each story is individual rather than being part of a greater whole But most of the stories are than strong enough to stand alone and even the weaker ones are well worth reading Wyndham is a great storyteller and the variety in this book allows him to show off his impressive versatility The stories are Chronoclasm a story that addresses the paradoxes inherent in time travel and throws in a nice little romantic comedy along the way Time to Rest the tale of a human stranded on Mars after the destruction of Earth and how his perceptions of the indigenous Martians gradually change as he struggles to accept his situation Meteor a threatened species sends explorers out into space to find a new home and the planet they find is Earth Comedy and tragedy all rolled into one a beautifully imaginative story this one Survival when a systems failure leaves a spacecraft drifting in space the passengers and crew must find a way to eke out their food supplies till help arrives There s only one woman aboard and she is desperate to find a way to ensure her unborn child survives Gruesome horrific and yet kinda fun too Pawley s Peepholes the people of the future find a way to visit the present and treat it like a peepshow popping up in the most unexpected and unwelcome places How will the people of the present respond A comedy with a satirical edge Opposite Number now we move into the realm of parallel universes though Wyndham s reasoning for their existence isersomewhat uniue This is Wyndham at his most romantic and than any other I found this story felt very dated Still enjoyable though Pillar to Post time travel again but this time by body swapping with people from the past But what if the person you ve swapped with doesn t want to swap back Imaginative and with a lot of humour but this story also takes a rather grim look at the horrific injuries some soldiers were left with after the Second World War Dumb Martian our nasty narrator buys a Martian woman to take with him on his solitary five yea.
