2010: ODYSSEY TWO

Granada paperback, 1983. Cover illustration by Michael Whelan.

"2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY WAS THE GREATEST STORY EVER WRITTEN OF MAN'S DESTINY IN OUTER SPACE. 
NOW IN 2010: ODYSSEY TWO, THE ULTIMATE QUEST CONTINUES... 
Out among the moons of Jupiter, the empty spacecraft DISCOVERY and the enigmatic alien monolith still float in the silent depths of space, mute witnesses of the mysterious disappearance of astronaut David Bowman through the 'Star Gate' nine years before. To them comes the LEONOV, bearing a joint Soviet-American scientific team on a mission of investigation and recovery. A mission whose outcome will be beyond the wildest imaginings of any of the mere humans involved... 
2010: ODYSSEY TWO carries the century's greatest story onward into astounding new dimensions of the imagination. It is a masterwork by one of the twentieth century's greatest storytellers and thinkers."
