Publisher's Summary

The invention of computers was a godsend to the obscure monks deep in the Himalayas. Their centuries-long project to write out all of God's names could be sped up by thousands of years. And only they had any clue what would come next!

Great story! (No Spoilers)

I love a short story that packs a punch. And I love sci-fi. So I really loved this Arthur C. Clarke classic.

Check it out. I’m certain you’ll love where it takes you.

It's ok

A neat little short story but ultimately just a short story. Not much else to say.
