A propos de cet article

Octavo, cloth. First edition. Collects two verse satires and nine stories including several classics; "The Dying Night," "The Last Question," and "The Ugly Little Boy." Also present here is "Profession," in which "imprinting knowledge directly into the brain leads to an uncreative society." - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, pp. 264-5. "All the Troubles of the World" features MULTIVAC, a giant computer which directs Earth's economy and is the central clearing house of all known facts about each individual inhabitant of the planet. Ultimately, it grows "so complicated, its reactions are no longer those of a machine, but those of a living thing" and what it wants more than anything else is "to die." See Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-50. Review slip laid in. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to spine ends and corner tips and a few rub spots to front panel. A very nice copy of this uncommon book. (#111865). N° de réf. du libraire 111865
