Brian Aldiss' first novel. A story of a small tribe in a very strange jungle, who make unsettling discoveries about the nature of their world. Non-Stop is the classic SF novel of discovery and exploration; a brilliant evocation of a familiar setting seen through the eyes of a primitive. Published in the US as Starship.
Brian Wilson Aldiss is one of the most important voices in science fiction writing today. He wrote his first novel while working as a bookseller in Oxford. Shortly afterwards he wrote his first work of science fiction and soon gained international recognition. Adored for his innovative literary techniques, evocative plots and irresistible characters, he became a Grand Master of Science Fiction in 1999. Brian Aldiss recently celebrated his eightieth birthday and is still writing to ardent applause.

Good book but annoyed at iTunes
Okay first of all, it's a good book well read by the talented voice artist (him being English also helps, easier to listen to in long stretches). However iTunes messed up the delivery of it to me. Part one is track two and part two is track one... This completely ruined one of the revelations of the story quite quickly for me as I hadn't quite clicked on that I'd started mid story.
