Publisher's Summary

One moment a man sits on a suburban hill, gazing curiously at the stars. The next, he is whirling through the firmament, and perhaps the most remarkable of all science fiction journeys has begun. Even Stapledon's other great work, Last and First Men pales in ambition next to Star Maker which presents nothing less than an entire imagined history of life in the universe, encompassing billions of years.

Simply Divine

This is the greatest book I have ever read. Sure, its not an easy read - even in audiobook format - but the immense size of the undertaking is incredible. It's like one of those images that zooms out from a grain of sand, up and up, until it is all the way to the end of spacetime and beyond. The philosophy in this book is simply outstanding, deep, thoughtful and insightful. The last few chapters... well, they are worth the price of entry alone.

Breathtaking

A powerful cosmic vision of a multitude of living forms and minds in an ever expanding multidimensional universe. That this could have been conceived in the 1930's is mind boggling. it is infused with the author's humanity and literary flair although the style won't suit everyone - it is an exhaustive decription of an endlessly unfolding dream/trip/experience that has you wondering - could this be real?
