Summary (From the publisher):

Arthur C. Clarke is without question the world's best known and most celebrated science fiction writer. His career, which now spans more than sixty years, is one of unequalled success. Now, in this huge and definitive book, he has collected every science fiction story shorter than novel length which he has published: over 100 in all, arranged in order of publication, from Travel by Wire! in 1937 through to Improving the Neighbourhood in 1999.

The complete contents of his seven published collections are here, plus all the stories he has written in the last two decades - since The Wind from the Sun appeared - and all his previously-uncollected fiction, including the original stories which later grew into such novels as Childhood's End, Earthlight and The Songs of Distant Earth.

Clarke has always been celebrated for his clear prophetic vision, which is fully on display in this book, but there are also many stories which show his imagination in full flight, to the almost inconceivably distant future, and to far-flung star systems.

As the year 2001 approaches - Clarke's year just as indelibly as 1984 was Orwell's - there could be no greater testament to his genius than this volume.
