It has been quite awhile since I have even found these titles, in fact I am probably one of the few who knows the authors' real name. Those who have read The Instrumentallity Of Mankind and Norstrillia also know his name and know that the quality and style of writing and wordsmanship are only equalled by authors like Asomov and Clark and maybe Zelasny. In my humble but well read opinion, all of these books are not only worth the mony, but worth the decades that they stay in your, and my, memory.
Thank you,
David Bequette

I read this book in the 1960's, when I was a teenager. Many of the images from the book remain clear in my mind thirty years later. Smith, more than any other recent SF writer, had the ability to depict the far future as if part of a remembered and mythic past. I'm trying to find this book on out-of-print search, so I can read it again.

Read it only if you can read quickly May 22 2001
By David Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book for $2 at a used bookstore - I bought it based on the silly cover and even sillier summary on the back.
This book is a bad book. While the first half is somewhat amusing, the second half of the book is quite painfully bad. You're left scratching your head, wondering what Cordwainer was thinking with the last part. Chicken planet? What?
Only read it if you can read it quickly (2-4 hours) and feel like reading a silly bad sci-fi book.
