Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Arthur C. Clarke’s prophetic novels and stories never cease to amaze us . . .

From the furthest arid stars to the secret ways under the oceans, from intelligent termites to super-intelligent aliens, and from ruined empires to the rings of Saturn, these fictions range through time and space - and map our future.

Containing many examples of rarely published stories by Arthur C. Clarke, this volume is a superb compendium of entertainment, thought-provoking thrills and astral surprises, and also includes introductions by the author.

'The colossus of science fiction'
The New York Times

'Science fiction of the finest quality'
Kingsley Amis
