Reach For Tomorrow - Arthur C. Clarke

A collection of decent Clarke stories - a 3.33 average overall, but certainly not his best, of course. The best stories are the first three, the rest certainly are not as interesting, in general.

Reach for Tomorrow : Rescue Party - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : A Walk in the Dark - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : The Forgotten Enemy - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : Technical Error - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : The Parasite - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : The Fires Within - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : The Awakening - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : Trouble with the Natives - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : The Curse - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : Time's Arrow - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : Jupiter Five - Arthur C. Clarke
Reach for Tomorrow : The Possessed - Arthur C. Clarke

An alien survey ship is surprised to find that the Earth system sun is going nova well ahead of schedule, and gets in trouble itself when it goes to look for people to save and can't find signs of life, until much later.
