Abstract:

This collection of short stories brings numerous lesser-known works from the world's foremost master of science fiction together for the first time. Reach for Tomorrow includes twelve highly memorable stories. Included is Rescue Party, a short story that may have served as an origin story for the renowned Rama series. As a cross-section of Clarke's work, Reach For Tomorrow is astonishingly diverse. Readers will find tales ranging in scope from the time of the dinosaurs to the unimaginably distant future; locations as far-flung as distant galaxies and as close as London; and voyages to the center of the earth and beyond the stars. It's a fun and fascinating read for any fan of Clarke or science fiction in general.
