Arthur C. Clarke

"Adams, Clarke, both gone now," lamented the Professor last night as we chatted about the writers who had perhaps most influenced our boyhood imaginations. A Fall of Moondust and Rendezvous with Rama were particular landmarks for me.

Sadly Anthony Anthony Minghella died too yesterday. I have to say though that I disliked every movie of his that I saw, with the single exception of The Talented Mr Ripley which I'm sure I will always be fond of.
