Review: Arthur C. Clarke's World Of Strange Powers

User Review  - Christopher Sutch - Goodreads

Contains some very good information and nice photographs. Seeing the accompanying show undoubtedly helps the material somewhat. unfortunately, the text skips over some things rather rapidly and without great detail, a necessity of the format of the concept and of the publication. Read full review

About the author (1984)

Fairley is a documentary film writer and has worked in British television for many years.

A writer of science fiction, Arthur Charles Clarke was born in Minehead, Somerset, England, in 1917. 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, but he is best known for his book 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was later turned into a highly successful and controversial film under the direction of Stanley Kubrick. 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. Clarke emigrated to Sri Lanka in the 1950s. He died on March 19, 2008 at the age of 90.
