The world was cold. The crew of the spaceship could feel the chill in their bones even as they hung in orbit, fifty planetary diameters away. It was a frightening prospect, for even the rays from this system's sun were weak, lifeless; it seemed impossible that such a bleak and icy globe could ever have produced intelligent life ... or so it seemed to a race that breathed gaseous sulfur and drank molten copper chloride. For the world of ice was Earth!

Heavy planet : the classic Mesklin stories by Hal Clement( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hal Clement is a Grand Master of SF, and the one most associated with the subgenre of hard SF. From his classic stories in Astounding in the 1940s through his novels of the 1950s and on to the recent Half Life, he has made a lasting impression on SF readers, and on writers, too. For many of them, Clement's work is the model of how to write hard SF, and this book contains the reasons why. Here are all the tales of bizarre, unforgettable Mesklin: the classic novel Mission of Gravity and its sequel, Star Light, as well as the short stories Under and Lecture Demonstration. Also included is Whirligig World, the famous essay Clement published in Astounding in 1953. It describes the rigorous process he used to create his intriguingly plausible high-gravity planet, with its odd flattened shape, its day less than eighteen minutes long, and its many-limbed, noble natives

The essential Hal Clement by Hal Clement( Book )

in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vol. 3: The third volume of the New England Science Fiction Association's Hal Clement reprint series is the most important yet because it includes two of Clement's Mesklin novels, Mission of Gravity (1954) and Star Light (1971), both long out of print. Dealing with relations between Barlinan, a ship captain from a world that has 800 gravities at the pole (i.e., things are very, very heavy there) and rotates in 18 minutes, and human explorers, the books are foundation stones of hard-science sf. Besides the novels, the collection includes Clement's article on the scientific basis of Mesklin, three short stories, and three original critical essays, on whose merits readers can make up their own minds. But have no doubt that Clement's own writing in the volume constitutes an essential acquisition for good sf collections
