3. Re: Arthur C. Clarke Mar 18, 2008, 19:36 Hump
 
I've read every single one of his novels (except the sea series that was geared towards teens). His name was always at the top of my list of favored authors. Most of his work still holds up fine today (including Childhoods End which actually seems more relevant now than it probably did when it was first released in '49) and its almost criminal that no more of his works were turned into movies after 2010 came out. Both Clarke and Bradbury got me through much of the most boring moments of middle school and have kept me a sci-fi lit fan for my entire adult life.

The guy led a full life (if I can make it to 90 I'll be surprised) and gave so much to the genre. I look forward to the well deserved tributes that will be forthcoming in the next few days.
