New York; (1999): New American Library. Octavo. Item #027339
236 pages. Not only is this copy signed by Arthur C. Clarke but it also has a new introduction that speaks of the collaboration both Clarke and Kubrick had in 2001 as well as some of scientific ideas that took place in the next few decades after the the original 1968 volume was issued. This is true as he notes what took place with Discovery and Voyager as well as the figure of HAL and Apollo 13. A book not only for the devotee of great science fiction but for the scientist and his or her world.
