Unhappy Arthur C Clarke RIP

Bummer

Incredibly inventive writer and still unbelivable that some of his stuff was written over 50 years ago and fairly accurately described future inventions

RIP

Since I read "Childhood's End" in highschool I've been tuned into his awesome concepts. Bummer.

How great a visionary he was! I became an addict through "The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke". "Rendezvous with Rama" is a masterpiece of realistic science-fiction. Next on my reading list are "2010", "2061" and "3001".
