Cities in Flight

(1970)
(A book in the Cities in Flight series)
An omnibus of novels by

 

"A compelling future history, a tale of thistledown cities blown by the winds of time. This is one of SF's most original concepts, an exciting tale deepened and made utterly plausible by Blish's craft and his mature understanding of people and history. If you haven't read this yet, I envy you. Blish's cities will fly through your dreams."
Stephen Baxter


James Blish's galaxy-spanning masterwork, originally published in four volumes, explores a future in which two crucial discoveries -- antigravity devices which enable whole cities to be lifted from the Earth to become giant spaceships, and longevity drugs which enable their inhabitants to live for thousands of years -- lead to the establishment of a unique Galactic empire.
