Godspeed Arthur C. Clarke

You were one of the greats.
Thank you for writing the short stories that showed me Science Fiction wasn't always about the Space/military epics, but could also be about regular people living their lives. Thank you for showing me that SF wasn't always grand, that it could also be the small realizations and experiences that create something different.
I outgrew your stories, but I never outgrew the meanings and the lessons.

Thanks.

I didn't know he'd died. I read tons of his books when I was a teen. Definitely had a huge impact on sf.

He will be missed.
