'''Space is what keeps everything from being in the same place. Right?' With these words Hiram Patterson, head of the giant media corporation OurWorld, launches the greatest communications revolution in history. With OurWorld's development of wormhole technology, any point in space can be connected to any other, faster than the speed of light. Realtime television coverage is here: earthquakes and wars, murders and disasters can be watched, exactly as they occur, anywhere on the planet. Then WormCams are made to work across time as well as space. Humanity encounters itself in the light of other days. We witness the life of Jesus, go to the premiere of Hamlet, solve the enigmas that have baffled generations. Blood spilled centuries ago flows vividly once more - and no personal treachery or shame can be concealed. But when the world and everything in it becomes as transparent as glass and there are no more secrets, people find new ways to gain vengeance and commit crime, and Hiram Patterson finds new ways to keep his Machiavellian schemes secret''.

2010: Odyssey Two (misspelt ''Clark'' on the title page)., Clarke,  Arthur C.
5 Clarke, Arthur C.2010: Odyssey Two (misspelt ''Clark'' on the title page). 04974
Granada: London. 1982.
First British edition (& 1st binding).
Hardcover.
Sequel to the classic (book and film) 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Misspelt ''Arthur C. Clark'' on the title page. All copies were pulped before publication and reprinted correctly - with just a few early review copies already sent out remaining with the error. Very uncommon variant (and true 1st printing of the UK edition).

''2001: A Space Odyssey shocked, amazed, and delighted millions in the late 1960s. An instant book and movie classic, its fame has grown over the years. Yet along with the almost universal acclaim, a host of questions has grown more insistent through the years, for example: who or what transformed Dave Bowman into the Star-Child? What alien purpose lay behind the monoliths on the Moon and out in space? What could drive HAL to kill the crew? Now all those questions and many more have been answered, in this stunning sequel to the international bestseller. Cosmic in sweep, eloquent in its depiction of Man's place in the Universe''.
