One of the most breathtakingly ambitious literary projects in the annals of science fiction, Stapledon’s magnum opus is nothing less than an account of humanity over the course of the next two billion years. Wildly imaginative and staggeringly comprehensive in scope, Last and First Men is an unparalleled feat of speculative fiction.
One of the most extraordinary, imaginative and ambitious novels of the century: a history of the evolution of humankind over the next 2 billion years.
Among all science fiction writers Olaf Stapledon stands alone for the sheer scope and ambition of his work. First published in 1930, Last and First Men is full of pioneering speculations about evolution, terraforming, genetic engineering and many other subjects.
