Interior text

In a recent issue, Holiday Magazine acclaimed Arthur C. Clarke as "the colossus of science fiction" — and with good reason. Still in his early thirties, he has already published fourteen books, which have clearly established his reputation as a careful scientist and a superbly gifted writer of fiction.

REACH FOR TOMORROW presents a second collection of Clarke's stories — the first was the highly successful EXPEDITION TO EARTH. From "Rescue Party" (his first published story, and still one of his most famous) to "Jupiter Five," one of his more recent stories, the amazing range of Clarke's ideas is fully represented. The science is authentic, the fiction — beautifully tempered with British understatement — is strikingly effective. The book is Arthur C. Clarke at his best — and what is better in modern science fiction?
