2061: Odyssey Three by Arthur C. Clarke


"2061 is hugely readable... no one who enjoys the stimulus of ideas that are elegantly presented should miss it"
-New Scientist

"With his comprehensive grasp of state-of-the-art space technology, plus an unrivalled imagination, Clarke manages in 2061: Odyssey Three to make space travel seem not only possible but inevitable"
-Time Out

Only rarely does a novelist weave a tapestry so compelling that it captures the imagination of the entire world. But that is precisely what Arthur C. Clarke accomplished with 2001: A Space Odyssey.

It is even more unusual that an author is able to compliment so well-received an invention with an equally successful sequel. But Arthur C. Clarke's 2010: Odyssey Two enthralled a huge audience worldwide.

Now, in 2061: Odyssey Three, Arthur C. Clarke revisits the most famous future ever imagined, as two expeditions into space are inextricably tangled by human necessity and the immutable laws of physics. And Heywood Floyd, survivor of two previous encounters with the mysterious monoliths, must once again confront Dave Bowman - or whatever Bowman has become - a newly independent HAL, and the power of an alien race that has decided Humanity is to play a part in the evolution of the galaxy whether it wishes to or not.
