A thousand years after being cast into the frozen void of space by the supercomputer HAL, Frank Poole is brought back to life—and thrust into a world more technically advanced than the one he left behind. He discovers a world of human minds directly interfacing with computers; genetically engineered dinosaur servants; and massive space elevators built around the Equator.
He also discovers an impending threat to humanity—lurking within the enigmatic monoliths. To fight it, Poole must join forces with David Bowman and HAL, now fused into one corporeal consciousness—and the only being with the power to thwart the monoliths' mysterious creators.
A continuation of Arthur C. Clarke's groundbreaking Space Odyssey series, 3001: The Final Odyssey takes readers on a journey full of mysticism, wonder, and suspense.
