It's sad to see him go. I've read a a lot of his books. He was a great writer.

I based my odyssey suite loosely on 2001, sad to hear that..

Used to love Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World.

In a better place now I hope.. like my cat..that died yesterday.

Yes, Mr. Clark was one of a kind, Childhoods End was a great book.

And he DIDN'T start some phoney baloney religion like some Si-Fi writers...
