The View from Serendip

(1977)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Pieces of writing by the master of SF Arthur C Clarke. The pieces themselves consist mostly of space articles (mainly projections of future society), a few articles about Clarke's home, Sri Lanka (once called Serendip, hence the title,) a handful of speeches, autobiographical fragments, one piece of fiction, and a smattering of various other types of articles. As the lifeblood of the book is a series of essays giving future projections for years that have now passed us by. Interesting to read how close his predictions were.
