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.
