Goodbye, Art! I worked at a computer company that had his letter on our wall, pride of place in the front lobby (he was one of our customers, before portable computers were popular). A great man.

Arthur C Clarke was one of my two favorite science fiction writers (JG Ballard is the other). Thank you for all of it, Sir Arthur; you pointed me toward a lot of marvelous things.

Two great men.
Arthur Clarke died at the age of 90 and in Sri Lanka, where he lived because he wanted to explore the see and loved diving. I think he had so full life that he passed away happy and peaceful.
Bur Minghella was only 54 and that's such a pity. "The English Patient" was a film that shook me and change my conception about love, I'll never forget it.
RIP.

Brief but feels demeaning in some way. Head of BBC drama, put the British film industry back on the map.

Sorry mate - it wasn't Mr Minghella I was trying to demean. I thought the questioner was being a bit contrived in their slacker approach - if someone truly didn't know who they were a quick google would have solved the problem. I bow  to Anthony's importance and reputation. I hoped the bit about A C Clarke and the monkey books might have indicated I was being a bit flippant.
Respect my friend.

I can't agree, neither Clarke wrote mostly about monkeys, nor Minghuella made just a film or two.
And I didn't know that bit about Arthur sexuallity but really, I don't care. What means to me is the work of the people. In fact if you search deep enough you can find dirty and nasty things about all famous and loved ones. With one exception, my favourite band. That's why I never care about personal details of musicians, writers, artists. Only their work.
Beatles are the only solely great exception.

Ok. I WAS JOKING. I couldn't believe no one had heard of Arthur C Clarke. And there are monkeys in 2001 (well primates anyway.) His enjoyment of having sex with young boys won't stop me appreciating his work (not that I'm a sci fi fan) but it does remind me never to make assumptions and  never put people on pedestals.
