In 1968, Arthur C. Clarke's best-selling 2001: A Space Odyssey captivated the world-and was adapted into a now-classic film by Stanley Kubrick. Fans had to wait fourteen years for the sequel-but when it came out, it was an instant hit, winning the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1983. Nine years after the ill-fated Discovery One mission to Jupiter, a joint Soviet-American crew travels to the planet to investigate the mysterious monolith orbiting the planet, the cause of the earlier mission's failure-and the disappearance of David Bowman. The crew includes Heywood Floyd, the lone survivor from the previous mission, and Dr. Chandra, the creator of HAL. What they find is no less than an unsettling alien conspiracy-surrounding the evolutionary fate of indigenous life forms on Jupiter's moon Europa, as well as that of the human species itself. A gripping continuation of the beloved Odyssey universe, 2010: Odyssey II is science-fiction storytelling at its best

For those who loved the classic Sci-fi "2001: A Space Odyssey," this story is a must read. In this sequel to the movie and book, the artificial intelligence called HAL is brought back to life, and we find out what really happened to Dave Bowman. In addition, the author attempts to describe the beings behind the monolith and the reasons for their actions. Arthur C. Clarke's "Odyssey Two" is brilliant, imaginative and thought provoking.
