General recommendation: when a thread comes to a fork in the road, take it.

That is, Yogi, start a new thread and write a well-crafted first post that encapsulates the seeds of the new discussion before continuing on with added thoughts.

Aright, you guys, all those novel and story names you've been dropping, and I've read them all ... except The Calibrated Alligator (WTF?). Now I'm going to have to get that from some used book vender. Luckly the Internet makes that relatively easy.

By the way, IIRC, Spider had to make his own translation of "Our Lady's Juggler" into English, because the available ones were all rubbish, if you had read the original story. Rubbish translations is one good reason for the story being mostly unknown today. I commented on something similar about "The Lysistrata".

"Tales from the White Hart" was *wonderful*. My favorite Clarke. :-)

Couldn't stand "Childhood's End" -- I thought it was an antiutopia when I first read it. Was wrong, at least as far as Clarke's intent was concerned. <wry grin> "Rendevous with Rama" came out when I was in high school, within a year of "The Gods Themselves". I read it, loved it. Reread it ten years later, still loved it. Found a genuine first-edition of it a few years ago that looked just like the one in my high school library, so of course I had to buy it and read the story again. I still like it, although I think that three readings will be enough for me on that one. ;)
