Sir Arthur C. Clarke: Odyssey of a Visionary
With over 100 books in publication, Sir Arthur C. Clarke is one of the world’s most renowned science fiction writers and winner of every award available in the genre—and this is the only complete biography of his life. This detailed and surprisingly intimate biography takes readers behind the scenes during Clarke’s famous collaboration with Stanley Kubrick on the classic film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It also highlights the visionary scientific concepts he imagined in his books—many of which later became reality.
This edition includes forewords by Ray Bradbury and Walter Cronkite as well as a special foreword for this first ebook edition by the author and is a substantial revision of the 1992 publication Arthur C. Clarke: The Authorized Biography, containing expanded material detailing the author’s early life and last two decades. A unique chronicle of one of the founders of the science fiction genre, this is the most current and comprehensive biographical reference on the author, inventor, and futurist.
