Clarke, Arthur C. The nine billion Names of God


Star Science Fiction Stories #1, ed. Frederik Pohl, Ballantine, 1953 "The notion that the computer might be the answer to all our problems is ironically encapsulated in Arthur C. CLARKE's fantasy "The Nine Billion Names of God" (1953), in which a computer rapidly and easily completes the task for which God created mankind." Encyclopedia of Science-Fiction (Peter Nicholls and John Clute)
