Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Arthur C. Clarke is without question the world's best-known and most celebrated science fiction writer, with a sixty-year career of unparallelled success. Gathered together for the first time are three of his early novels, each displaying Clarke's trademark clear prophetic vision.

The Sands of Mars
A dedicated group of pioneers, amongst them some of Earth's finest brains, struggle to change the face of the Red Planet . . .

Islands in the Sky
Sixteen-year-old Roy Malcolm wins a TV Aviation Quiz; his prize is a trip to the Inner Station, orbiting Earth, but undreamed-of danger and excitement turn his greatest ambition into a nightmare . . .

Man has colonised the planets, but the inhabitants of the Moon claim they owe no allegiance to any nation on Earth - or even to Earth itself . . .

Three different future worlds from the Master, showing his imagination in full flight.

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

'The Colossus of science fiction'
