The Best of Cordwainer Smith - Cordwainer Smith, Paul M.A. Linebarger When I was in high school I would occasionally accompany my older brother to the college he attended and spend the day browsing the stacks of the university library. One day I came across a book titled "You Will Never Be the Same" by Cordwainer Smith. I could not pass up that title or author name. Cordwainer Smith's stories are unlikely any other Science Fiction short stories you will come across. The titles alone convey their unique strangeness: "Think Blue, Count Two", "Alpha Ralpha Boulevard", "The Crime and the Glory of Commander Suzdal", "The Dead Lady of Clown Town", "The Colonel Came Back from the Nothing-at-All". These stories are vintage examples of what makes SF unique from any other form of literature and why I will never be able to stop reading it.
