He's another one I'll really miss. I certainly found some of his later work to be hit or miss, but his early and mid career writing was some of the very best in the genre and stuff that I loved reading. I guess I'll get out "The Sentinel" and watch 2001 tonight.

RIP

Wow. This just turned into a very sad night. Reading 2001 and Rendezvous with Rama as a kid helped shape me into the sci-fi nerd that I am now. They jumpstarted my kick into reading sci-fi, and alongside the Star Wars movies and Lord of the Rings helped pushed me into sci-fi and fantasy works as a whole. Truly a brilliant man, a great author, and a gifted visionary. I had hoped to meet him someday and will regret not ever being able to do so in some way.

Looking forward to this: Cracked.com is releasing a book of 20 never-before-read articles on Tuesday. Only $9.99 on Kindle; I'll get the sample when it comes out and if I like it, I'll buy it.
