Description

An Important Work, First Edition, With Dustwrapper

In this work Clarke writes a series of essays demonstrating the possibilities of scientific advancements. The work is credited for its unusually high level of accuracy and foresight. The work was later revised by Clarke, and then again finally in the millennium. Arthur C. Clarke was a British science fiction writer and inventor, who is widely regarded as a key figure in the popularisation of space travel. His screenplay for the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was co-written with Stanley Kubrick, is considered to be one of the most influential films of all time. For many years Arthur C. Clarke, along with Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asmiov, were considered the 'Big Three' of science fiction writing. As with this work, Clarke also wrote a great deal of non-fiction.
