Book Description

The book that gave the world the term Homo superior. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Introduction by Adam Roberts

John Wainwright is a freak, a human mutation with an extraordinary intelligence which is both awesome and frightening to behold. Ordinary humans are mere playthings to him. And Odd John has a plan - to create a new order on Earth, a new supernormal species. But the world is not ready for such a change . . .

Olaf Stapledon (1886-1950)

Educated at Balliol College, Oxford, and Liverpool University, Olaf Stapledon worked for a shipping office in Liverpool and Port Said before returning to lecture at Liverpool University. His books included the SF classics Last and First Men and Star Maker.

'Stapledon is the great classical example . . . the ultimate SF writer' Brian Aldiss

'Olaf Stapledon was one of the most creative thinkers of our time' Greg Bear
