Today’s Guest Corpse: Arthur C. Clarke

Sir Arthur C. Clarke, giant of science fiction, has died. He was 90. With him passes one of the last of the first wave of SF authors.

One perfect note about his passing: his official time of death is 1:30AM on March 19, 2008. As I write this, it is 5:40PM on March 18. Clarke lived in Sri Lanka, you see, but the upshot is this: Arthur Clarke managed to die in the future.

Well done, Sir Arthur, and Godspeed.
