Arthur C. Clarke is considered to be the greatest science fiction writer of all time. He is an international treasure in many other ways: An article written by him in 1945 led to the invention of satellite technology. Books by Mr. Clarke--both fiction and nonfiction--have more than one hundred million copies in print worldwide. He lives in Sri Lanka.
"From the Trade Paperback edition."From AudioFile:
Short fiction spanning the career of one of science fiction's greatest writers is narrated by several performers. Each story is preceded by a short description of where and when it first appeared, along with a brief introduction written by (but not read by) Arthur C. Clarke. This choice provides a nice break between stories. Clarke himself reads an introduction to the whole work. The readers are strong and well matched with the material. This excellent collection should be important to science fiction fans and collectors. S.D. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
