Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY Foreword Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. Since the dawn of time, roughly a hundred billion human beings have walked the planet Earth. Now this is an interesting number, for by a curious coincidence there are approximately a hundred billion stars in our local universe, the Milky Way. So for every man who has ever lived, in this Universe there shines a star. But every one of those ...

Arthur C. Clarke, 2010: ODYSSEY TWO Authors Note The novel 2001: A Space Odyssey was written during the years 1964-8 and was published in July 1968, shortly after release of the movie. As I have described in The Lost Worlds of 2001, both projects proceeded simultaneously, with feedback in each direction. Thus I often had the strange experience of revising the manuscript after viewing rushes based upon an earlier version of the story a stimulating, but rather expensive, way of writing a novel. ...

Arthur C. Clarke, 2061: ODYSSEY THREE Authors Note Just as 2010: Odyssey Two was not a direct sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey, so this book is not a linear sequel to 2010. They must all be considered as variations on the same theme, involving many of the same characters and situations, but not necessarily happening in the same universe. Developments since Stanley Kubrick suggested in 1964 five years before men landed on the Moon that we should attempt the proverbial good science-fiction movie ...

Though they were not remotely human, they were flesh and blood, and when they looked out across the deeps of space, they felt awe, and wonder and loneliness. As soon as they possessed the power, they began to seek for fellowship among the stars. In their explorations, they encountered life in many forms, and watched the ...

A Fall of Moondust by Arthur C. Clarke To Liz and Mike CHAPTER 1 To be the skipper of the only boat on the Moon was a distinction that Pat Harris enjoyed. As the passengers filed aboard Selene, jockeying for window seats, he wondered what sort of trip it would be this time. In the rear-view mirror he could see Miss Wilkins, very smart in her blue Lunar Tourist Commission uniform, putting on her usual welcome act. He always tried to think of her as Miss Wilkins, not Sue, when they were on duty ...

Armaments Race Arthur C. Clarke As Ive remarked on previous occasions, no-one has ever succeeded in pinning-down Harry Purvis, prize raconteur of the White Hart, for any length of time. Of his scientific knowledge there can be no doubt-but where did he pick it up And what justification is there for the terms of familiarity with which he speaks of so many Fellows of the Royal Society There are, it must be admitted, many who do not believe a single word he says. That, I feel, is going a little too ...

Dolphin Island Chapter 1 Johnny Clinton was sleeping when the hovership raced down the valley, floating along the old turnpike on its cushion of air. The whistling roar in the night did not disturb him, for he had heard it almost all his life. To any boy of the twenty-first century, it was a sound of magic, telling of far-off countries and strange cargoes carried in the first ships that could travel with equal ease across land and sea. No, the familiar roar of the air jets could not awaken him, ...

ENCOUNTER AT DAWN Arthur C. Clarke It was in the last days of the Empire. The tiny ship was far from home, and almost a hundred light-years from the great parent vessel searching through the loosely packed stars at the rim of the Milky Way. But even here it could not escape from the shadow that lay across civilization: beneath that shadow, pausing ever and again in their work to wonder how their distant homes were faring, the scientists of the Galactic Survey still labored at their never-ending ...

History Lesson Arthur C. Clarke No one could remember when the tribe had begun its long journey. The land of great rolling plains that had been its first home was now no more than a half-forgotten dream. For many years Shann and his people had been fleeing through a country of low hills and sparkling lakes, and now the mountains lay ahead. This summer they must cross them to the southern lands. There was little time to lose. The white terror that had come down from the Poles, grinding continents ...

INHERITANCE Arthur C. Clarke As David said, when one falls on Africa from a height of two hundred and fifty kilometers, a broken ankle may be an anticlimax but it is none the less painful. But what hurt him most, he pretended, was the way we had all rushed out into the desert to see what had happened to the A.20 and hadnt come near him until hours later. Be logical, David, Jimmy Langford had protested. We knew that you were O.K. because the base copter radioed when it picked you up. But the A.20 ...

On 30 June 1908, Moscow escaped destruction by three hours and four thousand kilometresa margin invisibly small by the standards of the universe. Again, on 12 February 1947, yet another Russian city had a still narrower escape, when the second great meteorite of the twentieth century detonated less than four hundred kilometres from Vladivostok, with an explosion rivalling that of the newly invented ...

Silence Please Arthur C. Clarke You come upon the White Hart quite unexpectedly in one of these anonymous little lanes leading down from Fleet Street to the Embankment. Its no use telling you where it is: very few people who have set out in a determined effort to get there have ever actually arrived. For the first dozen visits a guide is essential: after that youll probably be all right if you close your eyes and rely on instinct. Also-to be perfectly frank-we dont want any more customers, at ...

She stared at a wall, which showed the magnified image of an impossibly beautiful young man crooning into an old-fashioned microphone. Impossible, yes he was a synth-star, a distillation of the inchoate longings of subteen girls. My God, he looks like Alexander the Great. Bisesa could barely take her eyes off the walls moving colors, its ...
