♥ Book Title : The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke
☯ Full Synopsis : "Six decades of fascinating stories from the legendary “colossus of science fiction” and creator of 2001: A Space Odyssey gathered in one compendium (The New Yorker). Arthur C. Clarke, along with H. G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, and Robert A. Heinlein, was a definitive voice in twentieth century science fiction. A prophetic thinker, undersea explorer, and “one of the true geniuses of our time,” Clarke not only won the highest science fiction honors, the Nebula and Hugo Awards, but also received nominations for an Academy Award and the Nobel Peace Prize, and was knighted for his services to literature (Ray Bradbury). Now, more than one hundred works of the sci-fi master’s short fiction are available in the “single-author collection of the decade” (Booklist, starred review). This definitive edition includes early work such as “Rescue Party” and “The Lion of Comarre,” classics like “The Nine Billion Names of God” and “The Sentinel” (which was the kernel of the later novel and movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey), and later works including “A Meeting with Medusa” and “The Hammer of God.” Encapsulating one of the great science fiction careers of all time, this immense volume “displays the author’s fertile imagination and irrepressible enthusiasm for both good storytelling and impeccable science” (Library Journal). “One of the most astounding imaginations ever encountered in print.” —The New York Times “As his Collected Stories helps to demonstrate, there has been no popular writer since the days of C S Lewis and Charles Williams whose disposition is more nakedly apocalyptic, who takes greater pleasure in cradling eternity in the palm of his hand.” —The Guardian"Article| Arthur C. Clarke| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Childhood's End
☯ Full Synopsis : "In the Retro Hugo Award–nominated novel that inspired the Syfy miniseries, alien invaders bring peace to Earth—at a grave price: “A first-rate tour de force” (The New York Times). In the near future, enormous silver spaceships appear without warning over mankind’s largest cities. They belong to the Overlords, an alien race far superior to humanity in technological development. Their purpose is to dominate Earth. Their demands, however, are surprisingly benevolent: end war, poverty, and cruelty. Their presence, rather than signaling the end of humanity, ushers in a golden age . . . or so it seems. Without conflict, human culture and progress stagnate. As the years pass, it becomes clear that the Overlords have a hidden agenda for the evolution of the human race that may not be as benevolent as it seems. “Frighteningly logical, believable, and grimly prophetic . . . Clarke is a master.” —Los Angeles Times"Article| Arthur C. Clarke| Statement ..."

And when the theft of that alien artifact leads to two murders in the Labyrinth City, Sparta must risk her life and her identity to solve the case. As the mystery unravels, the investigation becomes a race across the stars to retrieve the plaque, a quest which will ultimately uncover even more evidence than Earth's scientists have ever discovered!"Article| Paul Preuss| Statement ..."

Clarke, grandmaster of science fiction and author of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Her code name is Sparta. Her beauty veils a mysterious past and abilities of superhuman dimension—the product of advanced biotechnology. Much excitement has arisen throughout the galaxy over the exploration mission to Jupiter’s moon, Amalthea. Led by the renowned Professor J.Q.R. Forster, the dangerous expedition will lead its members to the surface of this strange moon—and beyond. It is Sparta’s mission to monitor the trip on the part of the Board of Space Control. Her task becomes more threatening when Sir Randolph Mays, Forster’s rival and nemesis, “accidentally” crash-lands on Amelthea’s surface. Far from innocent, Mays has a plan for laying claim to Forster’s discoveries, and only Sparta is able to prevent sabotage. But what is Mays really after? And how will they all react to the discovery of an alien life-form?"Article| Paul Preuss| Statement ..."
