In 1964, Stanley Kubrick contacted Arthur C. Clarke with the idea of collaborating on a film based on Clarke's 1948 short story "The Sentinel." Clarke agreed to write a screenplay but soon grew bored, so Kubrick stepped in to collaborate while the author simultaneously penned a novel. Intending to publish it before the film was released, Clarke was irritated by the label of "novelization" when his literary work hit the street after the cinematic version reached the screen. While the film, which offers no explanations for events, often makes little conventional sense, the novel features Clarke's thorough cause-and-effect approach. Both novel and film received positive reviews, and continue to stand as cultural touchstones. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
