Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
The White Hart in Fleet Street is a favourite haunt of top science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke. At any time you’d find a garrulous crowd of journalists, scientists, editors and authors.

And . . . Harry Purvis.

In a pub of great raconteurs, Harry Purvis was the best. His amazing repertoire consisted almost entirely of tales of the quirks and eccentricities of scientists and inventors.

A man who could control a giant squid. Another who could silence a concert orchestra at the flick of a switch. Or, the French genius who invented a machine that could record all human pleasures and transmit them to any client rich enough to afford the sybaritic luxury.

These entertaining stories show Arthur C. Clarke at his most inventive and light-hearted.
