3001 By Arthur C. Clarke

A thousand years after being set adrift in space by the malevolent supercomputer HAL, cosmonaut Frank Poole is resuscitated—and wakes in a world very different from the one he left behind. This groundbreaking work of science fiction introduces technological advances surprisingly prescient for its time. And it questions whether humanity’s greatest threat comes from outside—or within itself.
