Product description


A first-rate tour de force (The New York Times)

Frighteningly logical, believable, and grimly prophetic . . . Clarke is a master (Los Angeles Times)

As a science fiction writer, Clarke has all the essentials (The New Yorker)

There has been nothing like it for years; partly for the actual invention, but partly because here we meet a modern author who understands that there may be things that have a higher claim on humanity than its own 'survival' (C. S. Lewis)

Book Description

A reissue of an all-time science fiction classic, from the author of 2001: A Space Odyssey
