Book Description Gollancz. 1 Paperback(s), 2000. soft. Book Condition: New. Curiosity was discouraged in the Greene tribe, whose members lived out their lives in the crowded spaces of Quarters, cutting back the encroaching vegetation. As to what was beyond their home—that was forgotten. Roy Complain decides to find out, and with the renegade priest Marapper he sets out into uncharted territory, where their discoveries turn their universe upside down. Originally published in Britain in 1958—and a year later as Starship in the United States—this is the debut novel by Hugo and Nebula Award winner Brian Aldiss, the most distinguished science fiction writer in Britain. Named an SFWA Grand Master and inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame, he is also a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the recipient of the OBE for services to literature, having produced dozens of volumes of nonfiction, anthology, and poetry."Non-Stop was one of the first SF novels I read, and it haunts me to this day. Its gritty reality and wonderful list of characters make the setting seem so immediate and palpable, you can almost taste it."—Greg Bear"Fascinating reading up to the end, and then, when you discover what it was all about, you start again at the beginning."—Observer (London) 241.
