RIP: Sir Arthur C Clarke

Sir Arthur C Clarke has died at age 90. Truly one of the greatest SF authors of all time. I never corresponded with him personally, though he was a decades-long friend to Pyr's parent company, Prometheus Books, and we were just about to send him a case of Pyr books. My son is named for him in part. Very sad, if not unexpected, news.

Another good writer gone.

Best wishes to you Sir Clarke, wherever you may be.
