A preeminent figure of British science fiction, Olaf Stapledon (1886-1950) wrote several influential novels. Praised by H. G. Wells, Aldous Huxley, and Virginia Woolf, Stapledon's works introduced such innovative concepts as genetic engineering and terraforming.
"No book before or since has ever had such an impact upon my imagination," declared Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey."
