Описание:
Клиффорд Дональд Саймак (Clifford Donald Simak, 3 августа 1904 г.—25 апреля 1988 г.) - один из крупнейших американских фантастов.
Хотя первый свой научно-фантастический рассказ Саймак напечатал в 1931 году, признание пришло к нему позже — в конце 30-х годов, когда он начал активно сотрудничать с журналом «Эстаундинг», редактором которого был Джон Кэмпбелл. Вместе с Азимовым, Ван Вогтом, Дель Реем, Каттнером, Старджоном, Ханлайном, которые печатались в журнале Кэмпбелла, Саймак считается отцом современной американской научной фантастики, а благодаря этим писателям период с конца 30-х до второй половины 40-х годов по праву называют «золотым веком» фантастики США. Российскому читателю имя Клиффорда Саймака известно с 1957 года, когда на страницах журнала «Знание-сила» был опубликован его рассказ «Однажды на Меркурии». С тех пор на русском языке вышли его романы «Всё живое...», «Почти как люди», «Заповедник гоблинов», «Город», «Кольцо вокруг Солнца» и многие другие.
С начала 60-х годов Саймак переключился в основном на написание романов, наиболее значительным из которых является «Пересадочная станция» (1963), также удостоенная премии «Хьюго», однако другие его книги того времени — «Что может быть проще времени» (1961), «Почти как люди» (1962), «Все живое» (1965) не слишком ему уступают. В 1968 году выходит знаменитый роман «Заповедник гоблинов», почти сразу же переведенный на русский язык и ставший чрезвычайно популярным среди советских любителей фантастики. Романы Саймака, опубликованные в 70-80-х годах, заметно уступают ранее опубликованным. Наиболее значительными из них являются «Выбор богов» (1972), «Наследие звёзд» (1977), «Пришельцы» (1980). Рассказ «Грот танцующих оленей» (1980) удостоен премий «Хьюго» и «Небьюла».
Отличительная черта творчества Саймака — вера в разум, в доброе начало в человеке и человечестве, призыв к миру и единению всех, кто живёт на планете Земля и с кем ещё, возможно, встретятся земляне. Свыше тридцати романов, сборников повестей и рассказов, многочисленные литературные премии, в том числе и самая престижная в американской фантастике премия «Хьюго», лауреатом которой Саймак становился неоднократно, — таков итог более чем пятидесятилетней творческой деятельности этого патриарха научно-фантастического жанра.
В 1976 году Ассоциация американских писателей-фантастов удостоила Клиффорда Саймака титулом «Гранд-мастер».

Chapter 1

Inspector Drayton sat, solidly planted behind the desk, and waited. He was a raw-boned man with a face that looked as if it might have been hacked, by a dull hatchet, out of a block of gnarled wood. His eyes were points of flint and at times they seemed to glitter, and he was angry and upset. But such a man, Peter Maxwell knew, would never give way to any kind of anger. There was, behind that anger, a bulldog quality that would go plodding on, undisturbed by anger.
And this was just the situation, Maxwell told himself, that he had hoped would not come about. Although, as now was evident, it had been too much to hope. He had known, of course, that his failure to arrive at his proper destination, some six weeks before; would have created some consternation back here on the Earth; the thought that he might be able to slip home unobserved had not been realistic. And now here he was, facing this man across the desk and he'd have to take it easy.
He said to the man behind the desk: "I don't believe I entirely understand why my return to Earth should be a matter for Security. My name is Peter Maxwell and I'm a member of the faculty of the College of Supernatural Phenomena on Wisconsin Campus. You have seen my papers..."
"I am quite satisfied," said Drayton, "as to who you are. Puzzled, perhaps, but entirely satisfied. It's something else that bothers me. Would you mind, Professor Maxwell, telling me exactly where you've been?"
"There's not very much that I can tell you," Peter Maxwell said. "I was on a planet, but I don't know its name or its coordinates. It may be closer than a light-year or out beyond the Rim."
"In any event," said Drayton, "you did not arrive at the destination you indicated on your travel ticket."
"I did not," said Maxwell.
"Can you explain what happened?"
"I can only guess. I had thought that perhaps my wave pattern was diverted, perhaps intercepted and diverted. At first I thought there had been transmitter error, but that seems impossible. The transmitters have been in use for hundreds of years. All the hugs should have been ironed out of them by now."
"You mean that you were kidnapped?"
"If you want to put it that way."
"And still will tell me nothing?"
"I have explained there's not much to tell."
"Could this planet have anything to do with the Wheelers?"

Gordon Knight was anxious for the five-hour day to end so he could rush home. For this was the day he should receive the How-2 Kit he’d ordered and he was anxious to get to work on it.
It wasn’t only that he had always wanted a dog, although that was more than half of it, but, with this kit, he would be trying something new. He’d never handled any How-2 Kit with biologic components and he was considerably excited. Although, of course, the dog would be biologic only to a limited degree and most of it would be packaged, anyhow, and all he’d have to do would be assemble it. But it was something new and he wanted to get started.
He was thinking of the dog so hard that he was mildly irritated when Randall Stewart, returning from one of his numerous trips to the water fountain, stopped at his desk to give him a progress report on home dentistry.
“It’s easy,” Stewart told him. “Nothing to it if you follow the instructions. Here, look, I did this one last night.”
He then squatted down beside Knight’s desk and opened his mouth, proudly pulling it out of shape with his fingers so Knight could see.
“Thish un ere,” said Stewart, blindly attempting to point, with a wildly waggling finger, at the tooth in question.
He let his face snap back together.
“Filled it myself,” he announced complacently. “Rigged up a series of mirrors to see what I was doing. They came right in the kit, so all I had to do was follow the instructions.”
He reached a finger deep inside his mouth and probed tenderly at his handiwork. “A little awkward, working on yourself. On someone else, of course, there’d be nothing to it.”
He waited hopefully.
“Must be interesting,” said Knight.
“Economical, too. No use paying the dentists the prices they ask. Figure I’ll practice on myself and then take on the family. Some of my friends, even, if they want me to.”
He regarded Knight intently.
Knight failed to rise to the dangling bait.
Stewart gave up. “I’m going to try cleaning next. You got to dig down beneath the gums and break loose the tartar. There’s a kind of hook you do it with. No reason a man shouldn’t take care of his own teeth instead of paying dentists.”
“It doesn’t sound too hard,” Knight admitted.
“It’s a cinch,” said Stewart. “But you got to follow the instructions. There’s nothing you can’t do if you follow the instructions.”
And that was true, Knight thought. You could do anything if you followed the instructions, if you didn’t rush ahead, but sat down and took your time and studied it all out.
Hadn’t he built his house in his spare time, and all the furniture for it, and the gadgets, too? Just in his spare time, although God knew, he thought, a man had little enough of that, working fifteen hours a week.
It was a lucky thing he’d been able to build the house after buying all that land. But everyone had been buying what they called estates, and Grace had set her heart on it, and there’d been nothing he could do.
If he’d had to pay carpenters and masons and plumbers, he would never have been able to afford the house. But by building it himself, he had paid for it as he went along. It had taken ten years, of course, but think of all the fun he’d had!
He sat there and thought of all the fun he’d had, and of all the pride. No, sir, he told himself, no one in his circumstances had a better house.
Although, come to think of it, what he’d done had not been too unusual. Most of the men he knew had built their homes, too, or had built additions to them, or had remodeled them.
He had often thought that he would like to start over again and build another house, just for the fun of it. But that would be foolish, for he already had a house and there would be no sale for another one, even if he built it. Who would want to buy a house when it was so much fun to build one?
And there was still a lot of work to do on the house he had. New rooms to add, not necessary, of course, but handy. And the roof to fix. And a summer house to build. And there were always the grounds. At one time he had thought he would landscape, a man could do a lot to beautify a place with a few years of spare-time work. But there had been so many other things to do, he had never managed to get around to it.
Knight and Anson Lee, his neighbor, had often talked about what could be done to their adjoining acreages if they ever had the time. But Lee, of course, would never get around to anything. He was a lawyer, although he never seemed to work at it too hard. He had a large study filled with stacks of law books and there were times when he would talk quite expansively about his law library, but he never seemed to use the books. Usually he talked that way when he had half a load on, which was fairly often, since he claimed to do a lot of thinking and it was his firm belief that a bottle helped him think.
After Stewart finally went back to his desk, there still remained more than an hour before the working day officially ended. Knight sneaked the current issue of a How-2 magazine out of his briefcase and began to leaf through it, keeping a wary eye out so he could hide it quickly if anyone should notice he was loafing.
He had read the articles earlier, so now he looked at the ads. It was a pity, he thought, a man didn’t have the time to do all there was to do.
For example:
Fit your own glasses (testing material and lens-grinding equipment included in the kit).
Take out your own tonsils (complete directions and all necessary instruments).
Fit up an unused room as your private hospital (no sense in leaving home when you’re ill, just at the time when you most need its comfort and security).
Grow your own medicines and drugs (starts of 50 different herbs and medicinal plants, with detailed instructions for their cultivation and processing).
Grow your wife’s fur coat (a pair of mink, one ton of horse meat, furrier tools).
Tailor your own suits and coats (50 yards of wool yard-goods and lining material).
Build your own TV set.
Bind your own books.
Build your own power plant (let the wind work for you).
Build your own robot (a jack of all trades, intelligent, obedient, no time off, no overtime, on the job 24 hours a day, never tired, no need for rest or sleep, do any work you wish).

На рутрекере есть релиз Саймака (не мой, хотя файлы я релизеру пересылал), но он не обновлялся, а за 15й-16й годы вышло много электронных изданий (от Open Road Integrated Media), включая первые 9 томов The Complete Short Fiction of Clifford D. Simak.
Кроме того, я убрал все txt, rtf, html и т.д. и сделал из них fb2 (там, где fb2 не было). По дороге исправил несколько сотен ошибок распознавания (не факт, что все).
Если Open Road Integrated Media действительно выпустит полное собрание коротких произведений (и оставшиеся тома до меня доберутся) - у нас получится полное собрание художественных произведений Smile
