    Mr. Clarke was one of my favorite authors when I was a teenager. His books are still somewhere in my closet.

    He was not only a great author, but a great humanitarian (especially for the Sinhalese people) and a true visionary.

    I still recommend his books to people who ask for suggestions about books to provoke thought …

    RIP !

    As a kid, “Childhood’s End” was one of the first Sci-Fi novels I read.

    He really did stimulate our imaginations.

    Later, I took to heart one of his sayings that I’ll paraphrase: “Grow old, but never grow up.”

    Great advice.

    Gonna miss him.
