2001; A Space Odyssey
Clarke, Arthur C.
A must-have deluxe hardcover edition of the wondrous space adventure that is the basis for Stanley Kubrickâ€™s Oscar-winning film of the same nameâ€”part of a new collectible series of six Penguin Sci-Fi/Fantasy Classics
Written when landing on the moon was still a dream, 2001; A Space Odyssey is a science-fiction classic that has changed the way we look at the starsâ€”and ourselves. On the moon, an enigma is uncovered. So great are the implications that, for the first time, men are sent deep into our solar system. But before they can reach their destination, things begin to go very wrong. From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn at the turn of the 21st century, Arthur C. Clarke takes us on a journey unlike any other. Brilliant, compulsive, and prophetic, and the basis for the immensely influential Stanley Kubrick film, 2001; A Space Odyssey tackles the enduring theme of manâ€™sâ€”and technologyâ€™sâ€”place in the universe and lives on as a landmark achievement in storytelling.
