    MOBI ahalico #191; Scanners Live in Vain eBook #231; Scanners Live PDFEPUB scanners kindle, live book, vain download, Scanners Live free, Scanners Live in Vain EpubRating 35 of fivePrescient and a little unnerving was Cordwainer Smith This tale makes the Earths spread over the galaxy accessible to each other only via the dead habermanscriminals dregs of society expiating their sins by being murdered diced into bits and reassembled so that they can operate the ships connecting the Earths since they can't feel the Great Pain Or as we'd call it today interstellar radiationWe really can't get too far from home because of the Great Pain of cosmic rays gamma ray bursts etc etc etc And I'm not altogether easy in my mind that someone somewhere isn't right now designing habermansDark and disturbing and almost 70 years old this story remains timely reminding us that every goal has a pricetag and every price must be carefully calculated against its cost

    MOBI ahalico #191; Scanners Live in Vain eBook #231; Scanners Live PDFEPUB scanners kindle, live book, vain download, Scanners Live free, Scanners Live in Vain EpubListened to this on the SFF Audio podcast wwwsffaudiocom The book was around an hour and a half and then the discussion was on the next podcast As is often the case I enjoyed the discussion than the book itselfFirstly if you are going to bother listening to this do yourself a favour and don't read the goodreads blurb half the fun of the book is trying to figure out what's going on and the blurb will just go ahead and spoil stuff and some of the stuff is open to interpretation anywayThis was written in 1945 and published in 1950 So it was cool to see how someone from that era perceived the problems of space flight and what solution they come with That's about as much as I can say I think without ruining the story Worth a listen especially if you include the podcast discussion3 stars

Remove all connection to the physicality of the experience and what have you in the place of a being? This is at the root of what it means to be a scanner in this tale Rich in its layers the work explores the limitations of people when they are denied experiences that seem human eating smelling feeling and And yet there’s the story richly pulls concepts of what does it mean to be obsolete? What does it mean to stand for progress at the expense of one’s bein

    MOBI ahalico #191; Scanners Live in Vain eBook #231; Scanners Live PDFEPUB scanners kindle, live book, vain download, Scanners Live free, Scanners Live in Vain EpubThe story is set in the far distant future when space travel has become routine However in order to withstand the unexplained pain of space humans are transformed into Cyborgs called scanners which render them mute from all senses and able only to see and hear The unexplained terms and references at the beginning was a little of putting and I was left wondering what was going on and thinking I missed something Once this passes it all falls into place and is really rather enjoyable Its a short story unlike any that I have read before and was enjoyable
