Reviews

"This is the most insightful analysis of Clarke I have seen. It has many gems, such as this irresistible pearl: 'Clarke's characters anticipate the way that more and more people now live their lives. Clarke's characters, then, may someday be regarded as his most significant prediction of the future, making him seem more like a twenty-first century writer than a twentieth-century writer--perhaps the greatest compliment one can imagine for a science fiction writer.' His scaffold leading to this is of the highest quality."--Gregory Benford "A well-considered reevaluation of Arthur C. Clarke's legacy. . . . His analysis is most valuable in its scope, ranging beyond Clarke's major works and considering his myriad stories, his less successful novels, his nonfiction, and even his juvenilia."--Booklist
