Arthur C. Clarke died at the age of 90 today. I always knew that it would happen, he has been an old man for quite a while. But it makes me very sad. His books introduced me to science fiction when I was kid and I have enjoyed reading them ever since. I have at least 25 of his books on my shelves and have probably read countless more. He was an amazingly prolific writer who never gave up on the quality of his work.
The literary and scientific world has lost a great mind today.
