“All explorers are seeking something they have lost. It is seldom that they find it, and more seldom still that the attainment brings them greater happiness than the quest.”

The City and the Stars (1956)

Update: Patrick Nielsen Hayden and Gerald Jonas on Clarke’s passing.

One thought on “RIP Arthur C. Clarke 1917-2008

  1. He will be sorely missed… he was one of the giants of the genre.

    This does give me a good excuse for running to the library and re-reading a bunch of his books though.
