2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY

ARTHUR C. CLARKE    Book Number: 84832    Product format: Paperback

The greatest science fiction epic of our time, first published in 1968 and reprinted many times, we are delighted to have this new Orbit paperback. On the moon an enigma is uncovered. So great are the implications that, for the first time, men are sent out deep into the solar system. But before they can reach their destination, things begin to go horribly wrong. Arthur C. Clarke is one of the truly prophetic figures of the space age and the colossus of science fiction. He was incredibly informed about physics and astronomy and blessed with one of the most astounding imaginations ever encountered in print. The book was written when landing on the Moon was still a dream and was made into one of the most influential films of all time and tackles the enduring themes of man's place in the Universe. 252pp in paperback which ends with a chapter of just four short paragraphs which begins 'There before him, a glittering toy no Star-Child could resist, floated the planet Earth with all its peoples...The feeble energies it contained were no possible menace to him; he preferred a cleaner sky...For though he was master of the world, he was not quite sure what to do next. But he would think of something.'
