In her Canopus in Argos series, Nobel laureate Lessing creates a "space" fiction universe to metaphorically explore spiritual, cultural and social issues. Volume III returns to the planet Shikasta of Vol. I, this time telling the story of human history and evolution from the Sirian perspective, a more bureaucratic and less advanced civilization. Booker Prize shortlisted in 1981; Canopus in Argos: Archives; Vol. 3.
