With degrees in astronomy, chemistry and education, it should come as no surprise that Harry Clement Stubbs – better known to SF readers as Hal Clement – produced some of the field’s most compelling, scientifically literate work.

This omnibus contains the clever alien-planet-with-a-twist novel Iceworld; the ground-breaking Cycle of Fire, with its 40-year-long seasons; and Close to Critical, from his celebrated Mesklin sequence.


You can find more of Hal Clement’s work via his Author page at the SF Gateway website, and read about him in his entry at The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
