Don’t miss Charles Martin’s fine obituary of Arthur C. Clarke over on Pajamas this morning. Charlie wrote me almost immediately after the announcement of Clarke’s death that he wanted to do one for us and that was a no-brainer. I couldn’t imagine anyone better and the obit he produced reads as if he had been working on it for weeks. (Maybe he had – you know these sci-fi guys.) I don’t have much to say about Clarke myself except that’s it’s nice to see people of that quality living long lives.
