The Remakable Science Fiction of Cordwainer Smith
 

All the Science Fiction Stories and All the Books

This page has four sections:

  1. A list of all the science fiction short stories (and novellas) that Cordwainer Smith wrote, with dates of original publication.
  2. Another list of all the stories, in the same order, but this time the entry for each story lists which books it was published in. (Anthologies with works of various authors are not included.) This list includes alternate titles as well.
  3. A list of all the books, with publication dates.
  4. And a list of what stories appear in each book.

I'm sure this page will have many uses. One handy one would be for someone thinking of buying a used book online and wanting to know what stories are in it.

I've removed all the illustrations from this page. With literally hundreds of hyperlinks, I wanted it to load as quickly as possible. See other pages in this section for cover art.

As I edited this page for this revision of the website, I was once again astounded at the work that Mike Bennett put into this list. Of course, there may be a few errors in a work of this magnitude -- including some I may have introduced in editing the html code -- but I expect you'll find it useful. Do browse through it -- it's not only a list; here and then Mike Bennett comments as well.

Himself In Anachron
Short Story

According to Alan Elms, this was originally written by PMAL and he considered his 1946 draft to be a completed story, circulating it to several magazines, all of whom rejected it.  Genevieve revised that version in the late 1970's for Harlan Ellison's "Last Dangerous Visions" (which has yet to see the light of day).  Presumably, this revision is the version printed in "The Rediscovery Of Man", printed by NESFA in 1993.  J.J. Pierce, says that a revised edition was intended for
You Will Never Be The Same titled either "My Love Is Lost In The Null Of Nought" or "She Lost Her Love In The Null Of Nought" but it wasn't completed.  Expect more updates in this section as more data emerges over time.

Norstrilia

Novel

Norstrilia has a complex history of publication, ignoring the complex history of writing it also underwent.  

Presumably finished sometime in 1963, it was broken into two pieces, the first half having some additional material written for magazine publication as
The Boy Who Bought Old Earthin April 1964.  This process also occured to the second half which was published in the magazines as The Store Of Heart's Desirein May 1964.  

In October 1964, "The Boy Who Bought Old Earth" was sculpted into the novel
The Planet Buyerand the same process occured to "The Store Of Heart's Desire", resulting in the novel The Underpeople.

In February 1975, the presumed original manuscript of "Norstrilia" was published as one.  Was it the original manuscript?

The NESFA Press version from 1994 is the definitive version.  It bundles together "Norstrilia" along with all the text added or changed to the original manuscript from "The Boy Who Bought Old Earth", "The Store Of Heart's Desire", "The Planet Buyer" and "The Underpeople".

Although it is stated in the NESFA Introduction that "Norstrilia", as first published, had been constructed from the two fragments, it seems unclear since the original printing never stated the source of the manuscript and the story flowed smoothly.

Alternate Titles: "Star-Craving Mad"
"The Boy Who Bought The Planet Earth"
"Everybody's Fond Of Money"
"Roderick Frederick Ronald Arnold William Macarthur McBan CLI"
"The Lover Who Loved And Lost C'Mell"
"The Stars Of Experience"
