IN MEMORIAM: Arthur C. Clarke

First Minghella and now this sad news. Clarke was a science fiction visionary. 2001: A Space Odyssey is a landmark of 20th century literature.

I hadn't realized until recently that Clarke was a gay man.

I didn't know he was gay. He was married back in the 50s (like that means anything) and had no kids.

i never read 2001 (the shame!), but i loved his short fiction. "the nine million names of god" still gives me the shivers.

his death is sad, but he did live a long and productive life. i should be as lucky.

Oh, geez, I still had not heard about this--'til now!
Thanks for the word-up.

I hadn't heard, either. Such a creative writer.
