clarke.jpg An aide to the famous science fiction writer tells the Associated Press that Arthur C. Clarke has died. That's all the news available at the moment. The author of 2001: A Space Odyssey, reportedly died in Sri Lanka, where he had been living for over 50 years.
If ever there was a need for a good biography, it is about Clarke. Revered as both a futurist and science fiction writer, he is also credited with proposing geostationary communications satellites. The breadth of his work and mysterious private life (which included accusations of pedophilia) would make for an intriguing story.
