This splendid new edition of Brian Aldiss’s first science fiction novel—it first appeared in 1958 and was originally published in the United States as Starship—has been updated for the twenty-first century. Non-Stop remains a brilliant and ground-breaking work of the imagination.
Curiosity was discouraged in the Greene tribe. Its members lived out their lives in cramped quarters, hacking away at the encroaching jungle called “the ponics.” As to where they were—that had long ago been forgotten. But Roy Complain decided to find out, along with the renegade priest, Marapper. They move into unmapped territory, where they make a series of discoveries that turn their universe upside-down. And they confront a secret kept hidden fortwenty-three generations—its discovery will reveal their origins and destiny even as it destroys their world.
