First UK edition, first print hardback of an Omnibus FOUR GREAT SF NOVELS: The City and The Stars; The Deep Range; A Fall of Moondust; Rendezvous with Rama, by Arthur C. Clarke and published by Victor Gollancz Ltd., London in 1978. Jacket illustration by Chris Foss.

The book is in very good condition (Clean red leatherette boards with gilt lettering on spine) with only slight wear to the illustrated dust jacket, which is not price clipped (minor creasing to the edges and light rubbing to one of the top corners, with light yellowing). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Science fiction icon Sir Arthur C. Clarke (1917-2008) was one of the world's best-selling authors of science fiction and wrote over sixty books. Clarke studied at King's College in London, and worked in scientific research before turning his attention to writing fiction. Clarke's first book was Prelude to Space in 1951. He was widely considered one of the masters of the genre. Deemed on par with authors like Isaac Asimov and Robert A. Heinlein, he was especially identified with his novels Childhood's End, Rendezvous with Rama, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Clarke's fiction is credited with combining flawlessly accurate technical details with such philosophically expansive themes as "spiritual" rebirth and the search for man's place in the universe. The recipient of at least three Hugo Awards and two Nebulas, as well as a host of other acknowledgements, he was also well recognized as an inventor, an editor, and a science commentator. Arthur C. Clarke won all the most prestigious science fiction trophies, and shared an Oscar nomination with Stanley Kubrick for the screenplay of the film of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Some of Clarke's later works include the sequels to 2001, 2010: A Space Odyssey II, 2062: Odyssey III, and 3001: The Final Odyssey, and the novels The Garden of Rama and The Snows of Olympus. He has been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, and he is the only science-fiction writer to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. His fiction and nonfiction have sold more than one hundred million copies in print worldwide.

"Arthur C. Clarke, maestro of science fiction, well-known to millions of cinema-goers throughout the world with the showing of the film '2001'. Famous for his predictions about space exploration - he predicted the use of earth satellites many years before they became fact - his fiction has always combined scientific accuracy and a most exciting story.

Contained in this one volume, complete and unabridged, are four of his most popular novels: The City and The Stars; The Deep Range; A Fall of Moondust; Rendezvous with Rama. Here is a science fiction at its very best. Four Great SF Novels"
