    I didn't know he was still alive. Well, he isn't now.

    Greatly enlightening obit.
    Sounds like a really visionary, forward-thinking maverick.
    World needs more of his kind, I think.
    Rest easy now, sir.

    As a sci-fi geek I truly am saddened. My favorites from Clarke were the Rama series and the entire 2001 series (2010, 2061, 3001).

    Great writer.

    One of the literary world's true giants. Now he will enlighten the souls of our forefathers the way he did us here on Earth.

    I covered an appearance he made in my hometown, for my high school paper. I thought he was really old then ... and I was in high school a Loooonnnng time ago. Back in the '70s, he kind of owned "the future," he was the guy who seemed to understand where technology was going. If only he'd had some ideas for the newspaper industry ...

    I realize I'm certainly in the minority, but as far as the movies, I liked 2010 more than 2001.

    All his books in that series are tremendous.
