    1. Aldiss propone, en una serie de relatos cortos, una historia de la humanidad que abarca millones de años, desde nuestras estúpidas guerras en la Tierra hasta la inevitable decadencia de nuestra querida galaxia. Cada relato toca un tema específico en la historia de la humanidad; algunos de estos relatos son bastante buenos mientras que otros se quedan un poco cortos pero sin llegar a ser malos. Para mí el mejor relato ha sido el último: Los milenios finales.Tiene algunos de mis temas favorit [...]

    2. Curiosamente este libro, al igual que el que leí inmediatamente antes (334), consta de varios relatos entrelazados que forman una historia más compleja sobre el futuro de la humanidad.En el caso del libro de Aldiss, la trama es lineal, desde un futuro cercano hasta el fin de nuestra galaxia. Está lleno de ideas originales que valdría la pena explorar en relatos más largos.Las 3 estrellas son porque los relatos son de calidad e interés muy desparejos, aunque el libro es corto y las viñetas [...]

    3. My second read by Aldiss and just as enjoyable. This is from the golden age of scifi or thereabout, 9 thematically connected stories about the future of the Earth. Of course that is much too vague, since most if not all science fiction deals with that very subject, but this is specifically the projected future that spans millennia and then some. So it's a very lofty, very ambitious premise and the execution, while somewhat uneven, is quite good too. Not great, mind you, for me it never really ex [...]

    4. Ésta obra bien podría tratarse de la magna del autor, ya que el halo de sobriedad y cohesión narrativa (pese a lo etéreo de su personal imprenta y el toque Pulp, que aquí es más Steampunk en su generalidad; por dar una idea del grado bajo de extravagancia aportada, para variar, por el escritor) a la par que la ambición de construir una alegoría futura mediante relatos semi conectados a nivel temporal, que no necesariamente correlativos (algunos con saltos temporales y de concepción), y [...]

    5. Galaxies Like Grains of Sandis a solid work of science fiction. It accomplishes what so many books in the genre surprisingly fail to do, which is to raise questions about our collective future based upon our past and present conditions. For those that want to consider far reaching ideas about our long-term societal and human evolutionary paths, Galaxies Like Grains of Sandhas no shortage of such ideas.My issues with Galaxies stem from its structure. It attempts to be one complete text that prese [...]

    6. Lo ideal serían 3.5/5, pero como lo he leído en plan homenaje al autor, pues lo subo a las 4.Al ser una recopilación de relatos, tampoco puedo hablaros demasiado de ellos sin marcarme un tochazo de esos que asustan. Así que sólo os diré que los 9 relatos en que se divide esta obra tienen un nexo común, la humanidad. En cada uno de ellos y con el paso de los milenios veremos como se desarrolla y evoluciona la raza humana, hasta llegado el desenlace ser conscientes de que en el fondo y a pe [...]

    7. This is easily one of the best sci-fi novel, or just book, that I have ever read. This book is old and I had to obtain my copy via eBay, but it was worth it. The eight interconnected stories come to a surprising conclusion, and overall is very thought-provoking. I liked how each chapter focused on a different part in human history. While I do feel that this book could have used some more detail (the book is fairly slim compared to other books such as say, Dune) it is still a wonderful and though [...]

    8. A set of vignettes composed as a 'history of the future', I found Aldiss's writing to have a good rhythm and clarity. The sense that all of humanity's intentions can be captured in a bit of 10-20 pages stories is done with surprising skill. There's a very little bit of age, as the book was written in the early post-war period, but I think even the most imaginative of authors would have had problems with coming up with the effects of information technology. Overall, a good read.

    9. Hard to go too far wrong with Brian Aldiss. Chapters/Stories were just the right size for me - I could read the book in short 30-page bursts.

    10. Very uneven stories but here and there you can found a lot of "food for thought". I'll probably be returning to this book in the futureRIP Brian Aldiss

    11. Visionary history of mankind as told in nine installments by its replacement. Tells the tale like a geologist would - using million, thousand, and hundred year increments - Aldiss shows how man is the perfect seedling for populating the universe as well as the ultimate vehicle for its self-destruction. Man ruins the Earth, leaves Earth for the stars, tackles the problems of time travel through an integrated form of speech-like alchemy, rediscovers a still populated Earth but does not believe it [...]

    12. It's a mixed bag, a collection of stories that forms a 'future history' that spans the lifetime of the galaxy. The last story is brilliant, if somewhat torturously written. If you aren't starting with a large vocabulary and a willingness to improvise pronounciation I suggest read this with a thesaurus or dictionary at hand. I do consider it well worth the read if you've leisure time to spare.

    13. The vignettes tied together well, but I wish some stories were longer and more developed. I liked the last few pages very much, though, which I appreciate since so many times the last chapter of a book is the most disappointing.

    14. this is a collection of short stories Aldiss then assembled into a longer future history; it doesn't come off too successfully. nevertheless some of the vignettes are quite strong.

    15. Classic science fiction, a series of short stories which share themes and references, and are woven into an overall plot arc spanning millions of years. Amazingly ambitious, and the fact that Aldiss basically pulls it off without is very impressive, as is the fact that it doesn't seem particularly dated even though it's from 1960.

    16. Nueve relatos en los que se cuenta la historia del futuro de la humanidad a lo largo de millones de años en la galaxia. Hay tres que me han gustado mucho: "¿Quién puede reemplazar a un hombre?", "Colmena genética" y "Ameba visitante".

    17. A book I read in my younger years. I recall it as unsettling, unlikeable and yet weirdly compelling - enough that I read it several times. Dunno if it holds up, but one day I'll go back and see.

    18. A collection of short stories that Aldiss wrote many years ago, recompiled and republished recently. The stories stitch together the future history of mankind from the near future through to the galaxy's demise due to a form of proton decay. It is quaintly anachronistic, referring to 'reels' of holographic 3-D cinematography, intelligent machines communicating their digital information to each other by punch card, and using the term 'island universe' for the Milky Way galaxy--a term that fell ou [...]

    19. This is from my Dad's collection. Before I get to the substance of the book, I think it's worth mentioning that my Dad's copy is from 1960 and it has a cigarette ad right in the middle of the book. Wow. Anyway, the novel is about the history of the Earth and our Galaxy in the very distant future. It reminds me a lot of Cloud Atlas, even though it was written so long before Cloud Atlas. I enjoyed it a great deal, and the story felt cohesive though I just noticed when examining the book that many [...]

    20. The book is a collection of short stories published in the pulps between 1957-1958. Aldiss has added some new interstitial material to connect the stories by way of describing them as historical fragments of life in the Milky Way galaxy. Most of the stories are merely average at best. Only two managed to hold my interest: Who Can Replace a Man?, about robots who do their best to carry on after the last human dies, and Visiting Amoeba, about the newest lifeform in a nearby galaxy stopping in to s [...]

    21. A short, easy read. But I feel like in all that was presented of histories in our future that there would be less ambiguity about the technologies at given eras. It's as if he almost purposely dodged that element if scifi altogether. The only real places where you get a sense of technology are in the chapter about the Isolationist and the end chapter. Even at that, the tech didn't reflect what you'd expect from a galaxy-wide culture(s) over the lifespan of the galaxy. A disappointment overall.

    22. What a weird book. The fixup is a little clunky but the stories are quite fine. The American paperback is actually the one to read rather than the UK Canopy of Time. Faber in England would not print Aldiss' extensive interludes between each story but Galaxies has them as Aldiss desired.Finally, there was a book of Aldiss criticism called Apertures by David Wingrove; it focuses heavily on this collection and is more well written and insightful than I am at the moment. Recommended.

    23. Las nueves historias que componen el libro describen en detalle los procesos subjetivos de enfrentarse a la infinidad del universo, a la conciencia sobre la propia mortalidad y a la pequeñez que sólo puede inducir el contemplar el cosmos. Además relata el recorrido de la humanidad a través de millones de años a partir de viñetas que son fotografías de los momentos de transición, conflicto o crisis.

    24. The story is a chain of loosely connected short stories, racing farther and farther into an incredibly distand future. The book from 1960 reads just like that era. It has a very recognizable taste. The stories itself tend to run each other and itself over. No matter how much time passes, human are still recognizably there and they still do the same things. Like the years, it is not countable, how often we repeated our mistakes and yet cannot learn not to make them again.

    25. This deserves four stars for it's ambition. Personal human stories during the various epochs of humanity's future. There is definitely an Olaf Stapledon feel to the story of humanity here, which I sense was Aldiss' intention/tribute.The near-future stories work far better than the distant ones. Like the "Cities in Flight" series by James Blish, there just isn't enough page-room to depict or explain a far-future evolving galaxy in a completely satisfying manner.

    26. Lúcida previsión del futuro de la raza humana en una novela que narra la evolución del hombre durante los milenios, en un repaso que parece más que una visión del futuro, un repaso de nuestro pasado. Todo con la brillantez y el genio de alguien como Aldiss, que ha demostrado su clarividencia husmeando en la nebulosa del porvenir y la ciencia ficción.

    27. A collection of short stories explaining the fall of humankind from a near future to the end of times, really, the end of everything. What a bravura, Mr. Aldiss. Even I can't say this is a must-reading book for everyone, some of stories really deserve a try. "Who can replace a man", just as an example of a really good one. Some of them are more run-of-the-mill, but a nice effort anyway.

    28. This short story collection is organized as a future history extending into the remote future. The stories don't particularly connect, but neither do they contradict. When written, it may have been perceived as "pithy", but at this date, it seems a bit shallow. I enjoyed reading it again, but it's no classic.
