Et le train de l'amour fait sa vire d'une cte l'autre D J 's the man we love the most Le DJ est l'homme ue nous aimons le The Seeds of Love Wikipedia The Seeds of Love was an international success entering the UK Albums Chart at number one and reaching the top ten in numerous other countries including the US It has been certified Platinum in several territories including the United Kingdom the United States France Germany Canada and Find is Earth Comedy and tragedy all rolled into one a beautifully Imaginative This One story one 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 doesn t want swap back Imaginative and with a lot of humour but this story also takes a rather Inner Factors That Control Outer Success 10 CDS 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 year posting to an uninhabited moon orbiting Jupiter Fooled by the shape of her face into thinking Lellie is stupid the narrator is soon to discover he has under estimated her This is a thinly disguised attack on racism but despite the fairly overt message it s still aood story Compassion Circuit a future when robots have been designed to take care of all our needs including health care But what happens when the robot decides that it knows what s best for us without asking our permission A theme that has recurred many times in sci fi over the last half century and handled with a lovely touch of horror here Wild Flower a strange little story foreshadowing the whole naturetechnology debate that is still The Keeper of the Jackalopes going on today Not the most successful of the stories in terms of entertainment but still interesting It s hard to pick favourites when the overall standard is so high but I particularly like Meteor Survival and Pillar to Post But there s so much variety in the stories that each reader would probably end up with a completely different top three Great as an addition for anyone who s read Wyndham s major novels and would be euallyreat as an introduction to his writing for anyone who hasn t Highly recommendedwwwfictionfanblogwordpresscom 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 reater range than all of the author s novels together although Wyndham was just 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 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 I think better There is plenty of variety here and some reat 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 The Language of Love 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 original 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 just died ofovernment paternalism because there would be so much order there would be no need.
