Star Maker is a science fiction novel by British writer Olaf Stapledon, published in 1937. Cover has DJ front pasted to cover by the publisher. The book describes a history of life in the universe, dwarfing in scale Stapledon's previous book, Last and First Men (1930) , a history of the human species over two billion years. Star Maker tackles philosophical themes such as the essence of life, of birth, decay and death, and the relationship between creation and creator. Arthur C. Clarke considered Star Maker to be one of the finest works of science fiction ever written, and Brian W. Aldiss called it "the one great grey holy book of science fiction".
