Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
'The Collossus of Science Fiction'
New York Times

Set towards the close of the 26th century, the story of a mysterious city, a youth of great courage and a lion of peculiar ability . . .

A novel set in the almost unimaginably remote future - the embryo work for Clarke’s later masterpiece
The City and the Stars.

'The visions are vivid, like the writing; even in his early period Clarke was a master'
Evening Standard
