Arthur C. Clark, too, R.I.P.

I read Arthur C. Clark's book "Childhood's End" written in 1953 when I was a teenager, and it changed the way I thought.

I became a fan of Isaac Asimov (whom I got to see speak at Vassar before he died; and who also wrote very readable, terrific histories of ancient Rome) and Ursula Le Guin.

He died today, too, at the age of 90. Here's the Washington Post on Clark.
