Thanks for the Odyssey, Arthur

Another of the great Golden Age authors in Sci Fi is dead. Arthur C Clarke was one of the greatest, even if he had his flaws. I'm a little sad that we won't see the likes of him again. Sure, there are great authors in the field now, like Stephenson, Brin et. al. But there was always something special in the writings of those who lived through humanity's awakening to technology, and the promise and ideas that went with it.
Who knows where we'll find a mind like that again? Maybe under a funny oblong monolith on the moon :-)
