Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Hold your hands out to the Sun. What do you feel? Heat, course. But there’s pressure as well. Over the area of your hands, it comes to only about a millionth of an ounce.

But out in space, even a pressure as small as that can be important, for it’s acting all the time, hour after hour, day after day. Unlike rocket fuel it’s free and unlimited. If we want to, we can use it. We can build sails to catch the radiation blowing from the Sun . . .

Arthur Clarke is one of the phenomena of our time, a distinguished scientist, broadcaster and television personality. In this outstanding collection he fuses science fact and fiction in an impressive showcase that will enthral both enthusiast and newcomer alike.

"Of all his talents, Arthur C. Clarke’s greatest must surely be his short story writing . . . a must for the science fiction addicts"
- Manchester Evening News

"Clarke’s stories have an inevitable sting in their tails"
- The Times Literary Supplement
