Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
The ultimate trip started with a story called 'The Sentinel' by Arthur C. Clarke. It took flight when Stanley Kubrick asked Clarke to write a novel of space exploration. The result was one of the most extraordinary films of all time.

Now for the first time, the reader is taken on every stage of this great adventure. Here is the original story: and the interplay between two brilliantly charged imaginations.

This is Arthur C. Clarke’s own intimate account of the unique chemistry between author and director which created 2001, A SPACE ODYSSEY.
