Clifford D. Simak THE MONEY TREE I Chuck Doyle, loaded with his earner a equipment, was walking along the high brick wall which sheltered the town house of J. Howard Metcalfe from vulgar public contact when he saw the twenty-dollar bill blow across the wall. Now, Doyle was well dried behind the ears-he had cut his eyeteeth on the crudities of the world and while no one could ever charge him with being a sophisticate, neither was he anybodys fool. And yet there was no question, either, about his ...

The Asteroid of Gold by Clifford D. Simak from Wonder Stories, November 1932 Towards the end of the 1930s many readers wondered if Simak would ever appear again. He had contributed only five stories to the professional magazines, and rumour had it he had written a masterpiece for one of those fan publications what was it Marvel Tales or something. Indeed Clifford Simak was comfortably making his way up the promotion ladder in newspaper circles. The lack of reliable markets had caused him to give ...

Skirmish by CLIFFORD SIMAK It was a good watch. It had been a good watch for more than thirty years. His father had owned it first, and his mother had saved it for him after his father died and had given it to him on his eighteenth birthday. For all the years since then it had served him faithfully. But now, comparing it with the clock on the newsroom wall, looking from his wrist to the big face of the clock over the coat cabinets, Joe Crane was forced to admit that his watch was wrong. It was ...

Clifford D. Simak The Autumn Land He sat on the porch in the rocking chair, with the loose board creaking as he rocked. Across the street the old white-haired lady cut a bouquet of chrysanthemums in the never-ending autumn. Where he could see between the ancient houses to the distant woods and wastelands, a soft Indian-summer blue lay upon the land. The entire village was soft and quiet, as old things often are - a place constructed for a dreaming mind rather than a living being. It was an hour ...

Clifford D. Simak Neighbor Coon Valley is a pleasant place, but theres no denying its sort of off the beaten track and its not a place where you can count on getting rich because the farms are small and a lot of the ground is rough. You can farm the bottom lands, but the hillsides are only good for pasture and the roads are just dirt roads, impassable at certain times of year. The old-timers, like Bert Smith and Jingo Harris and myself, are well satisfied to stay here, for we grew up with the ...

Weve got work to do. I took the bottle and corked it and set it high up on the shelf, where it wasnt right at hand. Doc managed to achieve some dignity. You neednt worry, Captain. As medic of this tub I want all hands up and moving. We may have something out there. I know, Doc said mournfully. When you talk like ...

Clifford D. Simak Operation Stinky I was sitting on the back stoop of my shack, waiting for them with the shotgun at my right hand and a bottle at my left, when the dogs began the ruckus. I took a quick swig from the bottle and lumbered to my feet. I grabbed a broom and went around the house. From the way that they were yapping, I knew the dogs had cornered one of the skunks again and those skunks were jittery enough from the jets without being pestered further. I walked through the place where ...
