Writer Arthur C. Clarke dies at 90

His were the dreams our stuff is made of.

Sir Arthur’s vivid and detailed descriptions of space shuttles, super-computers and rapid communications systems were enjoyed by millions of readers around the world.

In the 1940s, he maintained man would reach the moon by the year 2000, an idea dismissed at the time.

He was the author of more than 100 fiction and non-fiction books, and his writings are credited by many observers with giving science fiction a human and practical face.

  1. I will always miss the true genius of this great storyteller and I will always love Against the Fall of Night…later the city and the stars which truly loved as a child of 8 years old….further I will never forget Diaspar that great city which we can only imagine…but I will remember this too…it was really D’Spair in disguise!
