Arthur C. Clarke

What to say...?

His short story, “Breaking Strain”, (if I’m remembering correctly) is a great example of how a science-fiction story can contain both good science and good fiction. How good science can even be an integral part of good fiction.

Rendezvous with Rama may be my favorite Clarke novel. A comparison (& particularly contrast) with Gentry Lee’s sequels really highlights the things I enjoy about Clarke’s writing.
