FROM THE BLOG OF CAM WALKER My friends and I call ourselves the Outriders. It's not like a club of anything, we just all hate the idea of ever being BORED, and when we set our minds on something, we don't ask anyone's permission, we just DO IT. There's this place called Blue Cave, which glows blue ONCE EVERY SEVEN YEARS (phosphorescent plankton!). So obviously, we had to get there. But first we had to do three HUGE things:1. ENACT THE "FREE SHELBY" PLAN 2. "SCAVENGE" (NOT STEAL, THERE'S A DIFFERENCE) THE GEAR WE NEED TO CROSS TWELVE MILES OF OPEN OCEAN 3. BE HOME BY 7:00 P. M. My plan wasn't great, since it relied on a lot of luck. But everything worked perfectly-- except that Shelby's sister got kidnapped. But that's a longer story.
This collection of Clarke's work was originally published in 1953, when it was selected as one of the best science fiction books of the year by Boucher and McComas. It contains many short stories that would later become classics, including "The Sentinel"--the basis for the later classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. These stories present a brilliant showcase of Clarke's many-layered approach to the moral dilemmas of scientific advancement--from the thrilling and brutal "Breaking Strain" to the more poetic and thoughtful "Second Dawn." This collection represents a tour-de-force of science fiction storytelling sure to delight fans of Clarke's work and the SF genre.

A final confrontation comes in the mist-shrouded Mountains of the Moon, in war- torn Africa of 1914, and in Green Park, London, where, in the year 1840, Burton must face the man responsible for altering time: Spring Heeled Jack! Burton and Swinburne's third adventure is filled with eccentric steam-driven technology, grotesque characters, and bizarre events, completing the three-volume story arc begun in The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack and The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man.
