Tales Of Ten Worlds - Arthur C. Clarke

Tales of Ten Worlds? Not quite. Of the 15 stories, there are Earth, Mars, Venus, Saturn stories - and some farther ranging, so I guess the generarl sense of that title is perhaps fair enough.

Half of this is just average stories, although it does include four 4 star tales, including Who's There (or The Haunted Spacesuit if you like).

Hate is a little different, showing Clarke's marine interest in focus, in a story about divers, and is quite good, too.

A 3.40 average here.
