Before Eden by Arthur C Clarke

Read by Tim Pigott-Smith

The first men have arrived on Venus and search for signs of life, but their arrival has a terrible, unintended, consequence on the planet.

Before Eden starts as any generic planetary exploration tale. Two men investigate the polar regions of Venus and find the less than harsh atmosphere is ready for the evolution of life. The plot takes us through a vivid scientific expedition that visualizes barren Venusian landscape and something even more curious, a moving shape that hints at early evolution. The story’s real success is that it doesn’t tread a cliched path, but instead takes the reader by surprise in the very last paragraph.

Arthur C. Clarke was one of the most important figures in 20th century science fiction. He spent the beginning of his life in England, serving in World War Two as a radar operator. He then emigrated to Ceylon in 1956. He is best known for the novel and movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, which he co-created with the assistance of Stanley Kubrick.
