Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
OF TIME AND STARS
Includes the story that became
2001: A Space Odyssey

A Tibetan monastery hires a giant computer to list the nine billion names of God - with terrifying results.

A bored housewife encourages her laboratory-bred serving ape to take up painting - and astonishes the art world.

A lunar exploration mission stumbles across a sentinel left by an ancient space-faring civilization.

Of Time and Stars collects eighteen of Arthur C. Clarke’s classic stories. Full of humanity, humour and solidly scientific speculation, this volume includes 'The Sentinel', the story that inspired 2001: A Space Odyssey
