Cities in Flight

Cities in Flight

I am so thrilled to discover that James Blish’s epic four-book series, Cities in Flight, is available in eBook format (at least for Kindle).

If you haven’t read this but you’ve read Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy, or Clarke’s Childhood’s End, or Frank Herbert’s Dune, you really should add this to your store of knowledge.

The book is seminal and covers so many topics, many of which have never been covered before or since –  certainly never as well.

You can get the Amazon Kindle version here.
