Arthur C Clarke

Picture of Arthur C Clarke

Arthur C Clarke was born in Minehead, Somerset in 1917. He died in Sri Lanka on March 19, 2008. He was the author of many science fiction novels and books of short fiction. He also wrote books on science and had an engineering background, having served in the Royal Air Force as a radar specialist. His best known work,"2001: A Space Odyssey" was adapted for film by Stanley Kubrick. While the film was rather scant of scientific explanation, preferring to rely on the story and the effects, the book was full of detailed explanation. Clarke had other books adapted into movies, but none as successfully as 2001:A Space Odyssey. Arthur C Clarke is no stranger to Hugo and Nebula Awards having picked up six of them and been nominated a further three times for his fiction and short stories. 2010: Odyssey Two is the follow-up to 2001, A Space Odyssey.
