The Passing of a Giant

In case you hadn't heard, Arthur C. Clarke passed away at the age of 90. Read about it here.

"Science-fiction writer, inventor and futurist Arthur C. Clarke has died, leaving fans bereft at the loss of his brilliance and creativity."

His work contributed a great deal to our lives and our culture. He will be missed.

Here's an odd little coincidence for ya.

My DS, who is 6, has for the last few months been enjoying randomly picking books off my sci-fi/fantasy bookshelves and asking me about them. (He asks me "what's the catch" when he wants to know the basic theme and plot of the book - cracks me up every time).

A few days ago, he picked out "Rendevous with Rama" and asked me to read it to him.

So you might think it's because DH and I were talking about Clarke, but no, if we discussed it at all, it was in email.

So, kinda weird that he happened to pick that one out when he did.
