Product Description

Overlook SF& Fantasy Classics Series

Published to coincide with the author's 80th birthday, this splendid new edition of Brian Aldiss's first science fiction novel--it appeared in 1958 and was originally published in the United States as Starship--has been updated for the twenty-first century. Non-Stop remains a briliant and ground-breaking work of imagination.

Curiousity was discouraged in the Greene tribe. It's members lived out their lives in cramped quarters, hacking away at the encroaching jungle called "the ponics." As to where they were--that had long ago been forgotten. But Roy Complain decides to find out, along with the renegade priest, Marapper. They move into unmapped territory, where they make a series of discoveries which turn their universe upside-down. They meet mutants and giants, regimented rats, telepathic rabbits, and the fabled Outsiders. And they confront a secret kept hidden for twenty-three generations--a secret whose discovery will reveal their origins and destiny even as it destroys their world.

Brian Aldiss was born in 1925 in Norfolk, England. He has written more than forty novels and three hundred short stories as well as poetry and critical works. He has written book reviews for The Times Literary Supplement, The Guardian, and The Washington Post and is at work on several new projects.
