A Final Odyssey
I missed this. Wow. I'm even sadder than when Vonnnegut died.
Arthur C. Clarke has died of respiratory complications and heart failure at the age of 90.
2001 & 2010 were always among my favorite books (& movies). When he wrote "2001", the terrible, earthbound mediocrity of the actual 2001 would have been the stuff of dystopian nightmares.
But he did invent the communications satellite. I'm pretty sure I'll never leave such an enduring legacy.
