Summary (From the publisher):

Arthur C. Clarke, the author of such science fiction classics as Sands of Mars, Childhood's End and the world-famous 2001: A Space Odyssey is concerned with both the scientific and the metaphysical aspects of sf. A founder member of the British Interplanetary Society, Clarke originated the proposal for the use of satellites for communications: his technical knowledge is equalled only by his skill as a writer. These eighteen stories are chosen to show Clarke's development in both areas.

The collection includes

Hide and Seek: One man against a murderously efficient space cruiser - on an asteroid only 20 kilometres wide.

The Sentinel: The short story on which the author based 2001.

Sunjammer:A fleet of mighty sunships embarks upon a fabulous voyage.
