A first-rate tour de force
Frighteningly logical, believable, and grimly prophetic . . . Clarke is a master
As a science fiction writer, Clarke has all the essentials
There has been nothing like it for years; partly for the actual invention, but partly because here we meet a modern author who understands that there may be things that have a higher claim on humanity than its own 'survival'
