Review quote

“Dazzling. . .wrenching. . .a mind bender.”—Time “Brain-boggling.”—Life   “Full of poetry, scientific imagination, and typical wry Clarke wit. By standing the universe on its head, he makes us see the ordinary universe in a different light. . .[This novel becomes] a complex allegory about the history of the world.”—The New Yorker   “Clarke has constructed an effective work of fiction. . .with the meticulous creation of an extraterrestrial environment, the sort of extrapolation of which Mr. Clarke is a master.”—Library Journal   “Breathtaking.”—Saturday Review

About Arthur C. Clarke

Sir Arthur C. Clarke (1917-2008) was one of the supreme science fiction writers of the century and achieved vast popularity with 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1968. He has over twenty million books in print and won every imaginable science fiction award, including the Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Award for life achievement in 1986. In addition to his literary accomplishments, Sir Arthur, a former radar officer for the RAF, invented the Communication Satellite. For this achievement he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize; in 1998 he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth for Services to Literature.
