This is truly a sad day for science fiction. He was one of the greatest 20th century sci-fi writers. I will miss him.

Ye frail mortals who gaze upon this thread, forget not the fate of Arthur C. Clarke, once mighty, now surrendered to the inescapable grasp of destiny.

Requiescat in pace.



Truly a sad day. Also note that he practically invented communications satellites.

Why must these icons of geek culture continue to die?

The man was 90 years old, most people don't live that long.

Still it is sad, may he rest in peace.

So passes the golden-age of science fiction. May we be blessed with good writers in the future.

Everybody will go there. We're just a human. To become a LEGEND you have to die but your name will never be forgotten.... Peace.....

Are all the people who inspired Spore going to die this year?  (The guy who made games popular, the guy who made science fiction popular).  I hope Will Wright doesn't die!

Paradox time! I say we come back and try to save him with an operation. Sure, We'll fail due to the laws of time but hey!
