Grab Obit: Arthur C. Clarke, Legendary Author (51* d) RE: Obit: Arthur C. Clarke, Legendary Author 19 Mar 08

Shame - a great futurologist.

But also a shame he had to present the ideas in fiction, because he really wasn't much of a writer. "Rendezvous with Rama" is a classic example of how not to write. And the sequels are classic examples of how not to handle a collaboration. Some of his short stories (eg. "9 billion names of God") were good though.
