He past reactOPPOSITE NUMBERHere s another take on time travel This story works around the idea of different futures arising from different outcomes to decisions Can true love sort things out when fates goes horribly pear shapedPILLAR TO POSTWyndham s writing here reminded me most of HG Wells s social comentary science fiction espcially that of The Time Machine Here a man gets a brief chance to live in the future when he is mistakenly transmitted into a distant future Although the future society is no Eutopia it is better than his life in the past How hard will he fight to eep his future life and do they really want him in the futureDUMB MARTIANIf the woman in this story weren t a Martian and I think she was a human but of a multi generation Martian lineage the story would just be a cautionary tale against domestic abuseCOMPASSION CIRCUITThere are a couple classic Twilight Zone episodes that are similar to this story of man and machine and man becoming machine It s not particularly uniue or clever but still chillingWILD FLOWERThe last story of the group is by far the weakest The book ends on a whimper Just sing Where Have All the Flowers Gone and leave it at that In my youth I liked John Wyndham s science fiction stories and when I picked this one off a dusty shelf to catalogue it on GoodReads I decided to re read it before putting it back The seeds of time is a collection of short stories and I had forgotten some of them and had only vague memories of the rest so it was almost like reading them for the first time And I enjoyed them just as much as when I first read them some 40 50 years ago And that made me wonder When I was in my teens and twenties I read uite a lot of science fiction both short stories and full length novels Now I hardly read any On the rare occasions that I browse the science fiction shelves of book shops I usually don t come away with anything On the even rarer occasions when I have bought recently published science fiction I ve usually been bored and abandoned the book Have I changed or has the genre changedAt first I thought that I had lost my youthful taste for science fiction and that it was probably something one grew out of but re reading these stories by John Wyndham showed me that that isn t the case So the genre must have changed or everything that can be said has already been said and the new stuff is just boring repetition Or else most likely popular culture has moved on and left me behind What a drag it is getting old as the Rolling Stones anyone remember them used to sing Varied short stories by John Wyndham some from before WW2 and some decades later and still fresh 20 years since I last read themIf Wyndham makes you think of spooky children Midwich Cuckoos and triffids prepare for something different and I think better There is plenty of variety here and some great ideasChronoclasm is a thoughtful non action time travel paradoxTime to Rest is a pastoral tale where a human loner travels the Martian canals living a tinker s lifeMeteor is a pre war adventure Although basic plot is obvious from the start it presents an interesting slant on how one s insular perspective life experience body skews one s objectivity and ability to interpret what is around us when we are in an unfamiliar situationSurvival seems like a clich but of course it predates most of the sci fi films it brings to mind and it has a good twist Like other Wyndham works some of the characters express very misogynistic views albeit perhaps typical of the time It also has a prescient insight of the characters express very misogynistic views albeit perhaps typical of the time It also has a prescient insight the power of tabloid media and the power of celebrity as in Midwich CuckoosPawley s Peepholes is the story I remembered most vividly from my first reading of this collection It is a comic slant on time travel with satire of the media and its approach to truthOpposite Number is about parallel universes with an original ending Pillar to Post is like Meteor about disorientation when one cannot even begin to understand one s circumstances but it is a complex narrative It also posits that the end of the world could be that it just died of government paternalism because there would be so much order there would be no need to adapt Life is an accident and maybe survival is tooDumb Martian is good because finally a man with no respect for women gets his comeuppanceCompassion Circuit is a very short exploration of the relationship between humans and personal robotsWild Flower is completely unlike the others being rather twee like its titleAnd after all these years I think Pawley s Peepholes is still my favourite though perhaps not the best.

The Seeds of TimeI wish I liked this because I like how Wyndham brings a certain An Eye for an Eye kind of gentleness to sci fiSadly in this collection the gentleness flips towards boredom a few too many times There are uite a few interesting ideas here which then get suffocated with some real stuffy fuddy duddy writingChronoclasm 1 starTime To Rest 35 starsM Sci fi as it used to beThough always categorised as sci fi John Wyndham was probably one of the least science based writers of the genre There are very few gadgets in his stories and even when technology is being used in order to time travel for example he doesn t usually bother to give anyind of made up science to explain the working he simply expects his reader to accept it as possible and real His stories might take the reader towards the fantasy side of sci fi on occasion but at heart they re about humanity and Wyndham s contemporary society even if they may be set on Mars in some distant futureThis collection originally published in 1956 brings together ten stories ranging from comedy to horror with touches of romance and occasionally social commentary built in There s no real common theme this is a collection where each story is individual rather than being part of a greater whole But most of the stories are than strong enough to stand alone and even the weaker ones are well worth reading Wyndham is a great storyteller and the variety in this book allows him to show off his impressive versatility The stories are Chronoclasm a story that addresses the paradoxes inherent in time travel and throws in a nice little romantic comedy along the way Time to Rest the tale of a human stranded on Mars after the destruction of Earth and how his perceptions of the indigenous Martians gradually change as he struggles to accept his situation Meteor a threatened species sends explorers out into space to find a new home and the planet they find is Earth Comedy and tragedy all rolled into one a beautifully imaginative story this one Survival when a systems failure leaves a spacecraft drifting in space the passengers and crew must find a way to eke out their food supplies till help arrives There s only one woman aboard and she is desperate to find a way to ensure her unborn child survives Gruesome horrific and yet inda fun too Pawley s Peepholes the people of the future find a way to visit the present and treat it like a peepshow popping up in the most unexpected and unwelcome places How will the people of the present respond A comedy with a satirical edge Opposite Number now we move into the realm of parallel universes though Wyndham s reasoning for their existence isersomewhat uniue This is Wyndham at his most romantic and than any other I found this story felt very dated Still enjoyable though Pillar to Post time travel again but this time by body swapping with people from the past But what if the person you ve swapped with doesn t want to swap back Imaginative and with a lot of humour but this story also takes a rather grim look at the horrific injuries some soldiers were left with after the Second World War Dumb Martian our nasty narrator buys a Martian woman to take with him on his solitary five year posting to an uninhabited moon orbiting Jupiter Fooled by the shape of her face into thinking Lellie is stupid the narrator is soon to discover he has under estimated her This is a thinly disguised attack on racism but despite the fairly overt message it s still a good story Compassion Circuit a future when robots have been designed to take care of all our needs including health care But what happens when the robot decides that it nows what s best for us without asking our permission knows what s best for us without asking our permission theme that has recurred many times in sci fi over the last half century and handled with a lovely touch of horror here Wild Flower a strange little story foreshadowing the whole naturetechnology debate that is still going on today Not the most successful of the stories in terms of entertainment but still interesting It s hard to pick favourites when the overall standard is so high but I particularly like Meteor Survival and Pillar to Post But there s so much variety in the stories that each reader would probably end up with a completely different top three Great as an addition for anyone who s read Wyndham s major novels and would be eually great as an introduction to his writing for anyone who hasn t Highly recommendedwwwfictionfanblogwordpresscom I m tempted to say that John Wyndham s short stories are better than his novels The ten in this collection range from average to awesome You ve got robots time travel space trave.

L and Martians all written in Wyndham s accessible British style A couple of them could easily have been made into Twilight Zone episodes Seeds of Time won t make you forget Day of the Triffids or Midwich Cuckoos but it s definitely worth a read John Wyndham writes of these stories as The intention of Chronoclasm in the comedy romantic was to entertain the general reader and break away from the science fiction enthusiast Pawley s Peepholes is satirical farce Opposite Number attempts with perhaps ualified success the light presentation of a somewhat complicated idea For Dumb Martian and Survival I tried to use the pattern of the English short story in its heyday Compassion Circuit is the short horror story A neo Gothick trifle could one say And finally there is Wild Flower where one has encouraged science fiction to try the form of the modern short story The stories are ChronoclasmTime to RestMeteorSurvivalPawley s PeepholesOpposite NumberPillar to PostDumb MartianCompassion CircuitWild FlowerJohn Wyndham wrote the novels The Day of the Triffids The Kraken Wakes The ChrysalidsThe Midwich Cuckoos filmed as Village of the Damned Trouble with Lichen The Outward Urge Consider Her Ways and Others Web and ChockyThis collection contains good examples of his famous worksEnjoy This is a short story collection that is I dare say much less famous than Wyndham s novels It is however worth hunting down if you like those novels As is often the case with short story collections The Seeds of Time shows greater range than all of the author s novels together although Wyndham was just one of several pseudonyms used by this author and I haven t read any of the others THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN CURTAILED IN PROTEST AT GOODREADS CENSORSHIP POLICYSee the complete review here I will never tire of reading Wyndham His writing is witty original and thought provoking The themes and ideas he explores are still relevant today This book is no exception With 10 short stories all of the above come uickly and relentlessly There were no huge twists or surprises in the stories it is easy to see where they are leading but it is the details and atmosphere that ept me reading Such a good book 13 in my Top 20 Books I Read in 2015 thought Wyndham was an awesome novelist but he seriously might be even better with short stories The worst ones are Four Word Film Reviews kinda boring but the best ones are really stellar blood chilling space horror thought provoking social commentary and lots of Lovecrafty last lines that drive the mind blowing last nail in the coffin of my not being sure of giving this thing a 5It s 50s sci fi and if you don tnow what that means it means women tend to behave like good wives watch for instance It The Terror from Beyond Space where the two women on the spaceship cook and serve meals while the men sit on their asses but try and laught at that come on Dope collection Whereas Wyndham may now be best remembered for his novel Day of the Triffids clearly his strenghth as a story teller lay in the short story rather than the novel These stories the longest of which is thirty pages each of which starts on the notion of what if are delightfully entertaining thrilling or disturbing depending on the tone of the particular storyCHRONOCLASM It s the story of a man faced with sudden nowledge of the immediate and distant future and his willing participation for good and bad to see the future play out as it has been described to him Though the threat of a temporal paradox is presented the story ends up playing out as if paradoxes cannot come into being leaving the reader to ponder if man really has as much free will as he thinks he doesTIME TO RESTThis is one of three stories themed around Mars Here the Martians are native humanoids tall graceful and cultured The main character is an expatriot Earthman living the sort of life one of Hemingway s characters would have lived if he had written science fiction It s really just a lovely mood pieceMETEORMeteor plays on the notions of perception and assumption as it follows the disasterous attempt of a slow ship to colonize a far away slow ship to colonize a far away is the closest these stories get to pure horror It has all of the classic themes of man s inhumanity to man and monster within that is released when one s existence is threatened It is the second story that features Mars but here Mars is an unattainable goalPAWLEY S PEEPHOLESThis story is another time travel piece but is much lighthearted than Chronoclasm What would happen if people from the future decided to turn the past into one giant theme park How would the citizens of Mencant Les Graines De L'amour High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man Il y a longtemps ue nous nous sommes
