Fifty years after the alien message forbidding humans to approach the moon Europa, an expedition to Halley's Comet is forced to violate the prohibition in the name of mercy. Though lacking the lyrical prose of The Songs of Distant Earth , Clarke's latest addition to the story begun in 2001: a space odyssey will entertain fans of the ``black monolith.'' For large sf collections. JC (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Heywood Floyd, now the oldest man alive, takes part in a landing on Halley's comet, but the mission is cut short as his spaceship races to the rescue of a sistership stranded on Europa, the one world denied to humankind in the last message from the Monoliths, the large black slabs of usually sentient alien intelligence. Preceded by 2001: Space Odyssey and 2010: Odyssey Two. (N 1 87 Upfront)
