Arthur C Clarke Passes Away

I’ve just seen on Charlie Stross’ blog that Arthur C Clarke has passed away, age 90 at his home in Sri Lanka. He was the first science fiction writer I ever read. The Fountains of Paradise and Rendezvous with Rama still rate as among the best novels ever written. Very sad news.

“The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.”

Arthur C. Clarke
