2061: ODYSSEY THREE

Grafton paperback, 1988. Cover illustration by Michael Whelan.

"2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY WAS THE CLASSIC STORY THAT TOLD OF MAN'S DESTINY IN SPACE. 
2010: ODYSSEY TWO PUSHED BACK THE FRONTIERS OF HUMAN IMAGINATION STILL FURTHER.
NOW, 2061: ODYSSEY THREE TELLS OF HUMANITY'S EVOLUTION TOWARDS THE STARS... 
In 2061, when two suns share the skies of Earth, Halley's Comet returns to the inner Solar System. Soon the fates of the two spacefaring expeditions are entwined by human necessity and the immutable laws of astrophysics, Centenarian Heywood Floyd must once again confront Dave Bowman, a newly independent HAL and the limitless power of an alien race that has decided humanity must play a part in the evolution of the galaxy - whether it wants to or not... 
2061: ODYSSEY THREE takes the century's greatest story on to brilliant new dimensions of wonder and excitement. This is visionary storytelling at its compelling, mind-expanding best."
