Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Fifty years after the alien message forbidding humans to approach the moon Europa, an expedition to Halley's Comet is forced to violate the prohibition in the name of mercy. Though lacking the lyrical prose of The Songs of Distant Earth , Clarke's latest addition to the story begun in 2001: a space odyssey will entertain fans of the ``black monolith.''

As much as I enjoyed this book - and the entire series - I believe asking $154.39 for it is a bit high. Especially when you are offering it *used* for only $1.99
