CITY by Clifford D. Simak


Email this review


Eight stories, each preceded by an explanatory prologue, of the legends and history of the ascendancy of Dogs who, in some 12,000 years have taken over the earth only to find that eventually they will be annihilated by ants. The stories show the disintegration of the human race, who taught the dogs to talk and read, the threat of the mutants, the good and the wild robots, the emergence of the cobblies and the insistence on the law of not killing. There's better writing here and a sustained philosophical theme that rates it above the usual SF.
