In a single volume, the complete short fiction of one of the greatest SF writers of the century

Author of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Childhood's End, The City and the Stars, and the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Rendezvous with Rama, Arthur C. Clarke is the most celebrated science fiction author alive. He is—with H. G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, and Robert A. Heinlein—one of the writers who define science fiction in our time.

Now Clarke has cooperated in the preparation of a massive, definitive edition of his collected shorter works. From early work like "Rescue Party" and "The Lion of Comarre," through classics like "The Star," "Earthlight," "The Nine Billion Names of God," and "The Sentinel" (kernel of the later novel, and movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey), all the way to later work like "A Meeting with Medusa" and "The Hammer of God," this immense volume encapsulates one of the great SF careers of all time.

In The News

“This may be the single-author collection of the decade, even though the decade has barely begun . . . If the term 'sense of wonder' didn't exist, it would now have to be invented to describe what Clarke's majestic narratives evoke.” —Booklist (Starred Review)

“With his awesome inventiveness, sure grasp of scientific principle, readability, openness, and utter lack of viciousness or meanness, it's easy to understand why Clarke became the single most famous and influential non-American SF writer of the post-WWII period. If you are unacquainted with Clarke--possible, though barely--begin here at once. If you're old friends: Browse. Enjoy. Wonder.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Arthur C. Clarke is one of the truly prophetic figures of the space age . . . the colossus of science fiction.” —The New Yorker

“He is the prophet of the space age.” —Times of London

“Nobody has done more in the way of enlightened prediction than Arthur C. Clarke.” —Isaac Asimov

“Arthur C. Clarke is one of the true geniuses of our time.” —Ray Bradbury

“One of the most astounding imaginations ever encountered in print.” —The New York Times
