News: Arthur C. Clarke, 1917-2008

I've only read a few of Arthur C. Clarke's works, including "Childhood's End" and "Rendezvous with Ranma," but I can tell you that the world has lost a truly gifted writer. Mr. Clarke passed away today at age 90.

Here is his 90th birthday message:

Clarke once wrote that "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." I think the same holds true for sufficiently advanced writers.
