Desert Of Zin

The occasional blog of Alistair Bain – Writer, Husband, Father and Chief Techno-Arcanologist at the Institute of Giant Robots, Spaceships and Wizards. None of these positions pay well.

Arthur C Clarke dies at 90

Apparently he died after a cardio-respiratory attack.

BBC News have an obituary here.

A bit scunnered on hearing this but, truth be told, 90 is a fair age to reach.

It’s an odd one when an icon, someone whose work you grow up reading, dies.

Of course, I never met the man but I still feel the loss.  Strange.

Anyway, wherever you are in the cosmos Arthur, I hope you’re having one hell of a time…
