Die längste Reise:
"The Longest Voyage"
A traveller from earth has been stuck on this planet for
a long time, trying to find the right materials to fix
his spaceship. The planet is inhabited by the descendants
of human colonists. The traveller from earth wants to
get back, the people he lives with want his spaceship
to have more power. A third party is willing to help the
traveller, but fears for the future of the whole planet.
A rather sad story.
"The Barbarian" / 1956
An ancient letter from the year 175 000 BC is being found
and deciphered. In it, an uncle tells his nephew about
the story of "the barbarian" called Cronkheit,
who came to the kingdom and caused an awful lot of trouble
with his rude manners and weird way of acting. His philosophy
is to completely destroy all enemy life if possible. Very
stupid indeed, since the enemies are usually quite a good
people to conduct trade with afterwards. Furthermore,
the barbarian is a real savage when it comes to hygene
and love. Whether the name which sounds the like the german
word "Krankheit" (illness) is a hint towards
savage germany is not clear. Not impossible though, since
Anderson published the story just 11 years after WW2.
