Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Arthur C. Clarke is without question the world’s best-known and most celebrated science fiction writer. His career, spanning more than sixty years, is one of unequalled success. Now, in this huge and definitive book, he has collected every science fiction story shorter than novel length which he has published: more than 100 in all, arranged in order of publication, from 'Travel By Wire' in 1937 through to 'Improving the Neighbourhood' in 1999.

Clarke has always been celebrated for his clear prophetic vision, which is fully on display in this book, but there are also many stories which show his imagination in full flight, to the almost unimaginably distant future, and to far-flung star systems.

'Arthur C. Clarke is one of the true geniuses of our time'

'Arthur C Clarke’s first book for the millennium is a mammoth, truly indispensable collection . . . COLLECTED STORIES is a capstone to one of the greatest careers in science fiction and easily earns any hyperbole that a reviewer may indulge in. The story of science fiction cannot be told without the stories that are gathered here. Truly essential'

'Nearly 1,000 pages of some of the best short fiction the field has ever seen'
