       Additional Information  
     
      This masterpiece of science fiction by British philosopher and writer Olaf Stapledon (18861950) is an imaginative, ambitious history of humanity's future that spans billions of years. "No book before or since has ever had such an impact upon my imagination," declared Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. A must-read for scholars of the genre, this 1930 epic abounds in prescient speculations.
