The Wind from the Sun - Arthur C. Clarke Not among Clarke's best work, still, a very fine collection of short stories.
It's always such a treat to read intelligent sf written by an actual scientist,
especially one as good and imaginative as Clarke. Mainly because there are many things that would easily be overlooked by someone who is not so familiar with actual physical laws, also because someone who does scientific research would be more inclined to observe and question negative consequences of scientific revolutions and discoveries on society which often does not follow hand in hand with its mentality, and to explore new possibilities imposed by them.
Most of the stories are rather blah and unimaginative, but few of them stand out.
The wind from the Sun, Transit of Earth, Crusade and A meeting with Medusa are among my favorite from this collection.
