From the cover: “In 2061, when two Suns share the skies of Earth, Halley’s Comet returns to the inner Solar System — and a 21st-century trillionaire’s space yacht actually lands on the comet. Among the famous crew is centenarian Heywood Floyd, survivor of two encounters with the mysterious monoliths which seem to control the destiny of both the human race and whatever strange creatures inhabit the mysterious, cloud-shrouded Jovian moon, Europa. Soon the fates of two spacefaring expeditions are inextricably entwined by human necessity and the immutable, implacable laws of astrophysics. And Heywood Floyd has once again to confront Dave Bowman (or whatever it is that Bowman has become), a newly independent HAL, and the limitless power of an unseen alien race that has decided humanity is to play a part in the evolution of the galaxy. Whether it wishes to or not... With 2061: Odyssey Three the century’s greatest story takes on brilliant new dimensions of wonder and excitement. This is visionary storytelling at its compelling, mind-expanding best.”
