Read full description of the books:
I read this story because it was nominated for the Retro-Hugo Award. This is Clarke's second or third published story, in a fanzine called Amateur Science Fiction Stories (March 1938), and reprinted in The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke. The story is very lighthearted, with tongue firmly in cheek. There's not much to recommend it other than to see where a giant in science fiction got started. I'm sure it was only nominated for the Retro-Hugo Award on the basis of Clarke's later reputation; it falls far short of even the dubious quality of most professional science fiction stories of 1938.
