My God, It’s full of stars…

Arthur C Clarke was one of the best science fiction writers who has ever lived, and possibly ever will live. He was visionary like few people are; his vision of the future of humanity is one we can all aspire to; where men and women have reached out into the solar system, and our inventiveness and curiosity know no bounds, where science and reason and technology can take us further than any magic or superstition.

The big three of sci-fi (Asimov, Heinlein and Clarke) are all dead now. I hope the next generation of writers can take up the mantle.

  1. I should really read some Heinlein…

    Also, I think thats what’s saddest about Clarke’s death; there doesnt seem to be anyone there writing to the same level as Clarke/Asimov. Their writing made thousands of people interested in science; got us thinking, got us dreaming… Who is doing that now?
