9780020253914: City (Collier Nucleus Fantasy & Science Fiction)

On a far future Earth, mankind's achievements are immense: artificially intelligent robots, genetically uplifted animals, interplanetary travel, genetic modification of the human form itself. But nothing comes without a cost. Humanity is tired, its vigour all but gone. Society is breaking down into smaller communities, dispersing into the countryside and abandoning the great cities of the world. As the human race dwindles and declines, which of its great creations will inherit the Earth? And which will claim the stars?

About the Author:

Born in Wisconsin, Clifford Donald Simak (1904-1988) began writing SF in 1931 and was a regular contributor to John W. Campbell's Astounding Stories. He won the Nebula and multiple Hugo Awards, and in 1977 was the third writer to be named a Grand Master by SFWA.

Review:

an underrated writer who is worthy or reassessment. SFFWORLD.COM just about any work by Simak deserves to be considered a classic and City is no exception, it's a unique perspective on the race of man and a fantastic read. SFBOOK.COM
