THE CITY AND THE STARS

Clarke, Arthur C.

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, [1956].. Octavo, boards. First edition. A completely revised and expanded version of Clarke's first published novel, AGAINST THE FALL OF NIGHT (1948; 1953). "Arthur C. Clarke's 2001 (1968) is one of the most famous computer stories, but his THE CITY AND THE STARS (1956) may well be the profound artistically successful work of cybernetic fiction ... [It] is one of the most remarkable accomplishments of the imagination in all the literature that I am considering. Beyond imagining how computers might transform a society, Clarke also dramatizes the philosophical implications of life in a totally structured society. The novel is even more deserving of commendation because it is an early cybernetic novel, and computers and information theory were recent developments when it was written." - Warrick, The Cybernetic Imagination in Science Fiction, pp. 166-70. This novel "is perhaps his most characteristic and most enduring." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature I, pp. 374-7. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-245. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 22. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with some age-tanning, mostly internal, but with some show through on white spine panel lettering. A very nice copy.
