Rest in Peace Arthur C.

What a loss - a man way ahead of his time and a true prophet.

He wrote almost science speculation rather than fiction. He is popularly credited with dreaming up the notion of the satellite.

Already a legend long long ago, he is now somewhere in a galaxy far ..

His message to fans on his 90th birthday.

Valeria Cox, Pat Kenny's reporter met him on his 90th birthday on 16th December last and asked him if he believed in an afterlife. He said "No, that's it - the computer gets switched off. But I don't know for sure, do I?"

I got as far as " ..as Bob Hope says.." and dove headlong to turn it off.

Still any man who was involved in the first stoner-fest-movie epic is worthy of praise

Man, I used to just eat up his books. Great imagination, always kept his feet on the ground too. Never invented bullshit science just to help the story along.

I've read a few as well now and always thought he was speculative as opposed to fantastical. I know people live on Mercury and Venus in Rendevous with Rama but who knows ..?

He was also a very conservative personality in real life according to the news people after he died.
