Review of 'The Seeds of Time'

The Seeds of Time by John Wyndham

A series of short stories from one of the masters of classical Science Fiction: John Wyndham, author of such stories as The Day of the Triffids and The Kraken Wakes. The stories in this collection all tend to follow the theme of a dystopian Science Fiction environment such as Pawleys Peepholes which follows the story of time tourists visiting a city to see their ancestors – and the ancestors not being too happy about it. Quite well written but a bit slow in parts with some stories better than others. Dumb Martian is a bit of a jab at racism with quite a logical ending (I thought). A good read.
