    In my youth I liked John Wyndham's science fiction stories and when I picked this one off a dusty shelf to catalogue it on GoodReads I decided to re read it before putting it back The seeds of time is a collection of short stories and I had forgotten some of them and had only vague memories of the rest so it was almost like reading them for the first time And I enjoyed them just as much as when I first read them some 40

    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

    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

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 t 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 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 a good 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 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
