The sequel to Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama, written in 1989 with Gentry Lee. Clarke didn't originally have a sequel in mind, but his collaboration with the NASA engineer Lee that started in 1988 with the novel Cradle, apparently launched the expansion of the Rama story into a four-volume epic.

The remaining volumes are The Garden of Rama and Rama Revealed. Afterwards, Gentry Lee has gone solo with a two-volume story set in the Rama universe, namely Bright Messengers and Double Full Moon Night.
