Childhood’s End is adapted from Arthur C. Clarke’s classic novel first published in 1953 which has been praised as “frighteningly logical, believable, and grimly prophetic…Clarke is a master” (Los Angeles Times).

Just complete the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win!  Hurry though!  You only have until Monday, December 14 to enter!



Childhood’s End is one of the defining legacies of Arthur C. Clarke, the author of 2001: A Space Odyssey and many other groundbreaking works. Since its publication in 1953, this prescient novel about first contact gone wrong has come to be regarded not only as a science fiction classic but as a literary thriller of the highest order.

Spaceships have suddenly appeared in the skies above every city on the planet. Inside is an intellectually, technologically, and militarily superior alien race known as the Overlords. At first, their demands seem benevolent: unify Earth, eliminate poverty, end war. But at what cost? To those who resist, it’s clear that the Overlords have an agenda of their own. Has their arrival marked the end of humankind . . . or the beginning?

    I can’t wait to see this one. I love King’s The Stand and Rose Red mini-series and can watch them over and over. Mini-series are just a bit more than a movie which I love.

    My favourite sic-fi novel of all time, Childhood’s End, asks the essential human question, “Happiness at what cost”?
