Wow, I can't believe Arthur C. Clarke is dead... I was watching a bio on him the other day, he looked pretty healthy for his age... He was a great writer, and a brilliant man...

It's sad, he was probably the first sci-fi I read. Still 90 is a good age.

Arthur C. Clarke is one of those vague sci-fi deities for me, like the Prime Mover in a gnostic religion, that creature you know, but only vaguely. He was one of the greats, and he'll be missed.

yes, i was wondering how long it would take for the 'cold' part to hit in....12 hours or so? i guess it depends where they store the body.
