RIP Arthur C. Clarke

Arthur C. Clark, who wrote far too many science fiction stories for me to begin to recount, died in Sri Lanka at the age of 90. His most famous novel was 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was made into a movie by Stanley Kubrick and featured some of the most innovative interpretations of the near future that we've seen.

Along with Heinlein and Asimov, Clark was one of the giants of science fiction. He will be missed.

It's expected that a screen adaptation of Rendezvous With Rama may be released next year.
