Sir Arthur C. Clarke, R.I.P.

Very sad that this great author has died. Still, 90 is a pretty good innings as they say. His books had a huge influence on me, in particular Childhood's End, A Fall of Moondust (an absolutely excellent 'disaster' thriller) and of course the amazing Rendezvous with Rama and 2001: A Space Odyssey (and their raft of sequels). An amazing man and a great loss.
