Arthur C. Clarke has been the presiding genius of science fiction for almost fifty years. His novels include the ground-breaking and profound CHILDHOOD'S END and RENDEZVOUS WITH RAMA, and his collaboration with Stanley Kubrick produced one of the most enduring and important of all science fiction films, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. It was the last story in this collection, 'The Sentinel', that provided the starting point for that film.


His first ever collection of short stories, EXPEDITION TO EARTH displays all the versatility and range of imagination which has made Arthur C. Clarke one of the world's most popular and acclaimed science fiction authors.

Arthur C. Clarke

Sir Arthur Charles Clarke was a British science fiction writer, science writer and futurist, inventor, undersea explorer and television series host.

He co-wrote the screenplay for the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of the most influential films of all time.

Clarke's science and science fiction writings earned him the moniker "Prophet of the Space Age". His science fiction writings in particular earned him a number of Hugo and Nebula awards, which along with a large readership made him one of the towering figures of the genre.

For many years Clarke, Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov were known as the "Big Three" of science fiction.
