"Here is science fiction of the highest literary excellence and thematic intelligence. A monastery founded by the scientist Liebowitz is discovered decades after an atomic war. In the first part of the book a young novice in the monastery is the protagonist; in the second part we see scholars in a new period of enlightment; and in the final section we observe man's proclivity for repeating mistakes and the apparent inevitability of history's repeating itself." Shapiro. Fic for Youth, 3rd edition

Conditionally human by Walter M Miller( Book )

19 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In CONDITIONALLY HUMAN (February 1952), gene-alteration raises animal intelligence to near human levels, posing ethical and emotional questions for those involved in the animals' care. Miller handles the story's horrifying implications with prescient force and cool detachment. He had only been writing for publication for a little over a year when this story appeared GALAXY, and this, the first of his two contributions to the magazine, showed that he had already achieved full control of his talent. The ethical questions raised here ("Are they therefore human?" "Can we continue to treat them like property"?) are at the center of societal concern and debate sixty years later and are nowhere closer to being resolved. This version of the novelette is significantly shorter than the version which appears in the major 1980 collection THE BEST OF WALTER MILLER, JR. and it is reasonable to speculate that the version published in GALAXY was a reduction by its editor Horace Gold, who was well known to have engaged in that kind of imperious editing. There is no question that this more economical version fits better into GALAXY's format and serves Gold's views of editorial consistency. Miller's own views of the presumed alteration are unknown but the fact that his COMMAND PERFORMANCE appeared in the magazine nine months later suggests that he found this editorial intervention acceptable. (Some of GALAXY's authors did not. Theodore Sturgeon was notably discontented and Isaac Asimov left the magazine and science fiction writing in the late 50's, probably for that reason.)

In Beyond Armageddon, the science fictions writers have collected stories that address one of the most challenging themes of imaginative fiction: the nature of life after nuclear war. The twenty-one stories in this collection by masters such as Arthur C. Clarke, Poul Anderson, Ray Bradbury, J.G. Ballard, Robert Sheckley, Roger Zelazny, and Harlan Ellison, explore a variety of possibilities of "life after." These richly imagined stories offer glimpses into a future no reader will soon forget

Command performance by Walter M Miller( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

COMMAND PERFORMANCE (November 1952) was Miller's second and final contribution to GALAXY and appeared less than two years after his first sale, SECRET OF THE DEATH DOME, to AMAZING STORIES. An uncomfortable speculation on the true nature and penalty of telepathy, it shows his characteristic thoroughness and depth and is in fact a story whose central theme (and conclusion) were appropriated in the decades to come by many writers. Its female protagonist, able to read the minds of others, has always felt herself to be solitary in her gift; she learns that she is not and the consequences of that knowledge are managed with a remorselessness which was always central to Miller's work
