Alien Earth and different tales is a 1969 paperback anthology edited by means of Roger Elwood and Sam Moskowitz. the canopy blurb teases "Man discovers his barriers — and his hazards — in an international the place the timber speak, robots imagine and heartless machines make the ultimate decisions."

The lineup of authors is remarkable, together with Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, A.E. van Vogt, Clifford D. Simak, Andre Norton, Edmond Hamilton and Erle Stanley Gardner. the unique e-book dates run from the Nineteen Twenties to the '30s, '40s and '50s.

Considerable attempt went into resurrecting this booklet from someone's very terrible unique conversion. enormous quantities of damaged sentences, misspelled phrases and conversion artifacts were corrected. I'm convinced I've neglected issues, however the e-book is now very readable.

29 ( JORGE LUIS BORGES Y a escrito lo anterior, entreveo o creo entrever otra explicación. Acaso un arquetipo no revelado aún a los hombres, un objeto eterno (para usar la nomenclatura de Whitehead), esté ingresando paulatinamente en el mundo; su primera manifestación fué el palacio; la se­ gunda el poema.

Con el propósito de "sacarlos a la ver­ güenza, urdió con ellos la rapsodia que se titula Cuento de cuentos; muchas generaciones, embelesadas, han pre­ ferido ver en esa reducción al absurdo un museo de pri­ mores, divinamente destinado a salvar del olvido las locu­ ciones zurriburi, abarrisco, cochite hervite, quitóme alia esas pajas y a trochi-moche. Quevedo ha sido equiparado, más de una vez, a Lucia­ no de Samosata. Hay una diferencia fundamental: Lucia­ no, al combatir en el siglo II a las divinidades olímpicas, hace obra de polémica religiosa; Quevedo, al repetir ese ataque en el siglo x v i i de nuestra era, se limita a obser­ var una tradición literaria.

Su método es curioso: descubre que las perso­ nas más cultas de San Mamed de Puga, en Orense, han olvidado tal o cual acepción de tal o cual palabra; inmediatamente resuelve que los argentinos deben olvi­ darla también. . El hecho es que el idioma español adolece de varias imperfecciones (monótono predominio de las vocales, excesivo relieve de las palabras, ineptitud ) 45 ( JORGE LUIS BORGES para formar palabras compuestas) pero no de la imper­ fección que sus torpes vindicadores le achacan: la difi­ cultad.
