    :(


    It's sad that all the Grandmaster SF writers who shaped my mind growing up are leaving

    RIP Mr Clark and thank you for the many hours of enjoyment and expanding my worldview

    Rendezvous with Rama series is still one of my all time favorites.

    Rest in peace inventor, writer, visionary.... You will be missed.
