OF TIME AND STARS
by Arthur C. Clarke
published by Penguin Books, 1974
LIMITED TO ONE COPY ONLY, CONDITION 8/10
A varied, fascinating selection of Arthur C. Clarke's best science-fiction stories, including The Sentinel, on which the film 2001 was based.
For anyone who has never read science fiction before, this book would be a good place to start. Arthur C. Clarke reaches beyond the naive type of story that dwells only on scientific curiosities to a more truly imaginative type that examines the strange situations and the unfamiliar feelings that people (or even alien beings) would face when the meet them. Stories like these, even though they rest mainly on scientific fact, are not overburdened with technical material and make satisfying reading.
