Arthur C Clarke RIP

I had planned to blog this lunchtime about my renewed blood pressure issues, maybe I’ll leave that for another day. Instead I read the sad news that Arthur C Clarke has just passed away, aged 90.

It has to be said that he was not only a genius (invented the communications satellite) but also an exceptional writer. Rendezvous with Rama is one of my all time favourites and I have also enjoyed numerous other books written by him. It also has to be said, that as I kid I was always glued to the TV series Arthur C Clarke’s Mysterious World, which at the time I thought was the greatest TV show ever.

It is a sad, sad day and he will be greatly missed.
