Love this SO much I remember reading it 20 something years before and loving every moment of itTo et the full impact of this novel one has to realise this was one of the very first sci fi books in my life I started reading it out of sheer curiousity just to see what it was about this book I found stuck on the upper shelves of our home library And The Secret of the Great Pyramid gradually Irew to love it The idea that at any point in time there are parallel worlds which are simply on a different schedule On Their Move Through their move through seemed pretty much innovative to me then And then it blew my mind The idea that a person might be able to just step back and forth between the worlds the parallel ones due to some private uirk of their enetic makeup Liberating Imagine that you can just move from the dust and weariness of the city to the nature as it was in the prehistoric times And not through This was another beautifully written classic science fiction from one of the authors who was instrumental informing the early days of science fiction in America of the 1950 1960 s Simak s writing is consistent in that it is well crafted and explores ideas rather than expanding on the scientific side of a story His strengths are in describing an inner journey of realisation and so Ring Around The Sun would be unlikely to be considered science fiction if written today More likely it would have been considered speculative fiction as unlikely to be considered science fiction if written today More likely it would have been considered speculative fiction as lot of Simak s writing would be and a fair bit of his work would really be closer to the modern understanding of fantasyIn Ring Around The Sun A name that mystifies me incidentally our leading man is Jay Vikers an author living in some small town in America 1977 which let us not forget was far in the future when this book first came out in 1952 Vikers is an ordinary man with nothing especially uniue about him or his life But he is living in interesting times While it seems to the modern reader like a normal old time setting the anomalies start to creep in there are a whole lot of new inventions like everlasting razors and when Jay needs his car fixed the mechanic says it does not seem worth his while as he will be buying one of the new everlasting cars soon enoughThere are a few social anomalies as well the cold war has one on for a long time but never uite erupted into actual way And people are vanishing sometimes individuals other times whole families that are just Lesca gone The only common denominator seems to be that most of the people who vanished were poor Then Jay isiven a bewildering proposition a lot of money for h Jay Vickers living a rural existence in a small town is a restless writer There are new Sharpes Trafalgar gadgets on the market Everlasting razor blades and lightbulbs are in the shops and then there is the Forever C Though I m a longtime fan of science fiction I have often found something a little formulaic about most of the novels from theolden era of the Punished genre The problem is not with the premise though that can crop up from time to time so much as with the plot which typically functions in the standard pattern of boy meetsirl boy fights antagonists usually against seemingly overwhelming but ultimately surmountable odds boy His To Protect getsirl For a while though I thought that with this novel I had found one of the exceptions For much of its length Clifford Simak kept me uessing as to who Jay Vickers was and the role he was oing to play Then I Babys First Christmas (Christmas Is For Kids) (Christmas Is For Kids) (Harlequin American Romances, 754) got to.

Ring around the SunAnd lines but I thought the underlying premise was thin or at least the connections between novel ideas was thin view spoiler A multiverse exists with closely related "UNIVERSES AND SOME WITH PLANETS VERY "and some with planets very to Earth Certain mutant humans have developed special abilities like being able to shift to nearby in physical similarity Earths Others can telepathically communicate with intelligences in the stars These powers in particular allow the mutant community to rapidly advance develop forever products build robot factories on second Earths and coordinate movement of members I uess I thought that any one of those abilities or developments would have been interesting enough to merit a story on its own they didn t need to be Catwoman grouped together And in having so many things it seemed almost magical like the next problem will be solved by something even outlandish after a point it stopped sounding believable which seems a silly criticism of a sci fi story hide spoiler Simak is one of the most important Science Fiction writers of the early 1960 s mostly because he created novels of marvelous ideas ones with much potential and meat on them if you understand But Simak didn t always createreat characters and plots to o along with those ideas like so many other science fiction novels the ideas are important than the story However Ring Around the Sun is not one of those It is a marvelous sci fi novel centering around the very idea that Currie used in Everything Matters that the Earth is only one of millions of Earths existing in Multiple Space Time Planes space time planes book is mentioned in Stephen King s Hearts in Atlantis and influenced King in his Dark Tower series It is in my opinion a book that should be included in the modern Western Literary Cannon mainly because it merges literature and science in a way that most high school students could easily understand it and enjoy it In the story Jay Vickers on his way to a meeting with a Mr Crawford sees a shop selling Forever Light Bulbs as well as a razor that never needs sharpening a car that runs foreveretc This explains Crawford is crippling the industries of the world causing chaos and fear Vickers is supposed to investigate it and expose it in articles to be published But it s not all that simple because the people behind the Forever Light Bulb are trying to save the world not destroy it A fabulous book one that I ve read twice now It s very rare for me to do that The other books I ve read twice include LOTR Lord Foul s Bane by Stephen R Donaldson Dragonriders of Pern by McCaffrey

And Dandelion Wine By Bradbury 
Dandelion Wine by Bradbury s book easily ranks among these the concept of this story is reat the parallel Earths and mutation of the humans although that part surprised me at first I came to enjoy it As I was reading this story I realized this was written decades ago and I used to think there are ways to hear the starts as well didn t know others thought the same let some well before I was born The story Revs up from there real uick a little too uick and suddenly ends I do wish there was said before left to the imagination but all in all is a ood read for a sci fi enthusiast Ive read 5 Simak books now The City and Way Station are my favourite out of his eneric to me books this one is the best i ve read so far there s even suspense here if you enjoyed Time and Again or Time is the simplest thing Langlais correct pour les Nuls go for it. Ureza está virgem de ualuer intervenção humana instalam eles as suas indústrias o seu império de máuinas e robots com o fim de acabar com a civilização terrestre ue consideram errada e cruel e formar uma nova civilização ue povoará essas novas Terras baseada no entendimento e na paz Serão essas Terras povoadas por todos aueles ue pobres e miseráveis na velha Terra estão dispostos a abandoná la para viver uma vida melhor e mais feliz Este abandono em massa vai enfrauecendo o poder de produção da indústria terrestre e Crawford só tem uma solução auerra E a luta entre Crawford e os randes senhores da indústria por um lado e Vichers e os Mutantes por outro começa violenta e terrível Mundos Simultâneos é um estranho e perturbador livro de Clifford D Simak autor de esse outro alucinante livro ue é Guerra no Tempo já publicado na Colecção Argonau. ,

The end and the last Development Where The Girl Ann where the irl Ann who Simak had hinted might be a fragment of Jay s splintered persona was actually the "long lost love of his life after all just felt like a total cop out It "lost love of his life after all just felt like a total cop out It as though Simak was at the brink of doing something that would have been incredibly daring and far sighted for a novel of the early 1950s then wavered and reverted back #to the comfortable clich s of his time It doesn t # the comfortable clich s of his time It doesn t the novel isn t worth reading but it left me with a sense of disappointment at having witnessed something that could have been so much reater than it turned out to be Classic science fiction not as ood as way station but then again what is There are off course sign of age everybody smokes the Cold War is ever present but you need to be able to overlook these things if you ever are Aryan Idols going to read an older storyBut the story flows uickly and effortless and introduces some very interesting concepts Simak writes very much like Ray Bradbury His characters are not superheroes who save universes They are everymen caught up in extraordinary circumstances This is why I enjoy the works of Bradbury and Simak than the modern writers who rely on technology and superheroes to drive their storiesMuch of the 1950s culture can be found in this book Economic displacement was a hard reality of early 1950s with runaway inflation brought about by the end of World War II and the Korean War We also see signs of the fear of communism and subversive plots by other countries to undermine our economy and way of lifeThe book has a well paced plot until he stops to talk to his friend There we must plod through page after page of philosophical babble about the nature of the cosmos before the storyets moving again It s as if Simak had to pause to explain what his novel was about rather than revealing it through the plot Simak didn t et much wrong technologically in the book It is set in 1978 and the year really isn t that important The only laring dated incident is when he had to wait for long distance operators to complete a call Direct dial long distance was available in 1978The long narrative pause is the book s only Bourdieus Secret Admirer in the Caucasus glaring weakness Vickers is a likeable character who makes rational decisions based on the information he isiven This was a pulp novel published in installments in Galaxy Science Fiction This type of story telling doesn t lend itself to complex character development and Vickers is the only character with any development But he remains that simple man without agenda just trying to do the right thingThe plot twist at the end was brilliant I was convinced the novel was Something in Return going to end tragically with him and Ann unable to fall in love I have to admit that I didn t see the twist coming That twist dramatically raised my opinion of the book and made reading it worthwhile Jay Vickers thinks he s a normaluy in a uickly changing world new forever products razors cars are coming out that never need to be replaced or maintained Big Industry is scared and tries to hire Jay to write something negative about the innovations but he politely declines Soon Industry has riled up the masses to riot and smash all the forever products and sometimes their owners Jay then escapes on a road trip to his childhood home and relearns a forgotten ability that changes his beliefs about himself and the future RAtS had some nice scenes. Gabinetes de Estudos Norte Americanos mas na realidade o todo poderoso organizador dum trust mundial de indústria disposto a lutar de ualuer forma contra a progressiva destruição das indústrias de todo o mundo Assim Vichers vê se convidado a escrever um livro ue consiga demonstrar as conseuências catastróficas do aparecimento dos novos produtos Vichers recusa sem mesmo saber a razão porue o faz apenas movido por um pressentimento E de descoberta em descoberta chega à espantosa conclusão uma nova raça está a aparecer no mundo uma raça de Mutantes seres humanos sem dúvida mas com possibilidades físicas e psíuicas bem diferentes das do homem vulgar Essa raça consegue transportar se para ualuer dos mundos ue precedem ou se seguem à Terra numa cadeia ininterrupta em roda do Sol Nesses mundos exactamente idênticos à Terra mas onde não existe o homem e a Nat.
