According to the Times Online, science fiction author Arthur C. Clark has died at age 90. He died of what the article calls a “cardio-respiratory attack.”
Clark was one of the pioneers of science fiction. He wrote over 100 books, including perhaps his most famous which was made into a classic movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” by Stanley Kubrick.
The piece says he was sometimes known as one of the “Big Three” of sci-fi, alongside Robert A. Heinlein and Isaac Asimov.
I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on by these three incredible writers. They shaped my imagination, and there will probably never be science fiction again the way these grand masters wrote it.
