Notes From The Margin

Death Of A Visionary – Arthur C. Clarke 1917-2008

We on the Margin pause to note the passing of Arthur C. Clarke, noted science fiction writer and visionary. Mr. Clarke was well known for his 2001 series and a range of science fiction books. His work foresaw the advent of communications satellites and a range of other developments that we take for granted today.

New York Times tribute to Mr. Clarke can be read here.

Rest in Peace.

  1. RIP.
    Thanks Marginal for recognizing the passing of this visionary. Sometimes in the Caribbean we are so taken up with our insular concerns that we profess to have no time for widening our imagination. 2001 A Space Odyssey may not have been the most exciting film ever, but was certainly a chilling harbinger of the future (or the present for that matter!)
