Arthur C. Clarke Against the Fall of Night To Johnnie PROLOGUE Not once in a generation did the voice of the city change as it was changing now. Day and night, age after age, it had never faltered.

Even here, half a mile above the ground, the sudden hush brought Convar out to the ...

Pearson rose to his feet, and came forward out of the little cafes shadowed porch, ...

This time, he was sure, it had been no dream: the freezing air that rasped against his lungs still seemed to echo with the sound that had come crashing out of the night. He gathered his furs around him and listened intently. All was quiet again: from the narrow windows on the western walls long shafts of moonlight played upon the endless rows of ...

Something was wrong. A pale shape swam in the air. Doctor Heyer No. No, Mum, its me. That face came into focus a little more, and there was her daughter, ...

Yet in a little while, thought Reinhold, the island would be bathed with fires fiercer than any that had attended its birth. He glanced towards the launching site, and his gaze climbed the pyramid of scaffolding that still surrounded the Columbus. Two hundred feet above the ...

It was not really a good place to work, for the view was too overwhelming.

And on any scale of probability the affair of the Reluctant Orchid must rate very low indeed.

No matter I do remember the ...
