Description

‘A prodigious novel … Stapledon’s literary imagination was boundless’ Jorge Luis Borges

A lasting influence on successive generations of science fiction writers and on the physicist Freeman Dyson, this poetic, philosophical tale of one man’s unexpected voyage through the universe is imbued with a sense of mystery and vast cosmic loneliness.

‘The most wonderful novel I have ever read … Star Maker remains light years ahead’ Brian Aldiss

‘Probably the most powerful work of imagination ever written’ Arthur C. Clarke

‘A unique genius’ Doris Lessing

‘One of the most creative thinkers of our time’ Greg Bear
