Publisher's Summary

Arthur C. Clarke, it has often been pointed out, possess the best attributes of poet and scientist. Clarke is also a profound philosopher. This story is a rare example of sympathetic insight mingled with the best science-fiction traditions. It may shock or disturb you, but it will not leave you unmoved. One thing, however, is certain: it could have been written by no one else.

The Single Greatest Short Story I Have Ever Heard

Any additional comments?

Although only just under 17 minutes, this story has had a much more lasting effect on me than any novel I have ever read.
Almost like poetry, if any single sentence was cut out from this story, it wouldn't be the same. Its perfection in simplicity is astonishing.

I will never forget this story. I think that says enough.
