The City and the Stars, 2012

The City and the Stars was Arthur C. Clarke’s first and seventh novel. It began its existence as Against the Fall of Night in 1948. But Clarke extensively rewrote and published it under the new title in 1956. I’ve broken one of my unwritten rules here by naming something after a book I haven’t read, but it was too good an opportunity to miss. What it means is I can’t recommend this book to anyone. Can anybody else?

For the time being I’m  naming my posts and photographs after Science Fiction novels.

As always thanks to John Pindar and Deanne who set this whole titling thing in motion. And to my collaborator and all-round cool dude, Richard over at CK Ponderings, who is naming his photographs after Pet Shop Boys songs.
