Sir Arthur C. Clarke…

Sir Arthur C. Clarke died today, at his home in Sri Lanka, at the age of 90. I know I shouldn't be sad -- he had a wonderful long run, and did a tremendous amount with his life, in literature and elsewhere. But still.

Here's one of my favorite stories of his -- one of my favorite stories ever, in fact. (Skip over the italicized intro paragraphs; they give things away, and they're not original to the story.) It's only a few pages long, so if you haven't read it before, please take a few minutes to enjoy "The Star".

    Sad news, but somehow appropriate: Arthur C. Clarke died– tomorrow.
    (1:30 AM Wednesday, Sri Lanka time.)

    With all of love,
