Cities in Flight represents one of the most important developments in SF - the transformation of standard themes into something deeper and more profound, while retaining the thrilling sense of adventure and wonder in the utterly compelling human stories.
James Blish's galaxy-spanning masterwork, originally published in four volumes, explores a future in which two crucial discoveries - antigravity devices which enable whole cities to be lifted from the Earth to become giant spaceships, and longevity drugs which enable their inhabitants to live for thousands of years - lead to the establishment of a unique Galactic empire.
'Exciting, intelligent, galaxy-spanning stuff...The real heady wine of sf' Terry Pratchett
'If you haven't read this yet, I envy you. Blish's cities will fly through your dreams' Stephen Baxter
