Collected stories of Arthur C Clarke
There's lots of typical real science ideas here. It's not just cowboys and Indians in space. However there are quite a few 'end of humanity' tales. The small individual event stories are the best.
Many of the stories are ideas and thoughts rather than full tales and maybe reflect a flippant sense of humour or cynicism. Some are definitely finger pointing at politicians.
Overall definitely worth the read. The style and focus does change across the years but so it should.
