From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man ventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other.
This allegory about humanity’s exploration of the universe—and the universe’s reaction to humanity—is a hallmark achievement in storytelling that follows the crew of the spacecraft Discovery as they embark on a mission to Saturn. Their vessel is controlled by HAL 9000, an artificially intelligent supercomputer capable of the highest level of cognitive functioning that rivals—and perhaps threatens—the human mind.
Grappling with space exploration, the perils of technology, and the limits of human power, 2001: A Space Odyssey continues to be an enduring classic of cinematic scope.
The official novelisation of the classic film, Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is a hilarious and provocative satire of the madness of Mutually Assured Destruction. Featuring impotent generals, a sieg-heiling scientist and one very Big Board, this is how the world ends, not with a whimper, but enough megatonnage to make you abandon monogamy.
Written by Peter George, co-screenwriter of the film and author of Two Hours to Doom, the novel that inspired it, this brand-new edition also features a foreword by David George and the never-before-published ‘Strangelove’s Theory’, a short story on the mastermind as a younger man.
Based on Stanley Kubrick’s film Dr Strangelove. Screenplay by Stanley Kubrick, Peter George and Terry Southern.
