"What? Only three interview requests overnight? Has the world forgotten
me already?" was the e-mail response from Sir Arthur to a New York
Times interview request the first week of 2001. Obviously, he has been
very busy in the beginning of a year forever linked to his name. In 1968,
Stanley Kubrick finished a science fiction epic film after nealy three
years of production based on a short story by then just plain Arthur C.
Sentinel, 1948). The rest was history, as they say...
Arthur C. Clarke was born in Minehead,Somerset on December 16, 1917 and
was an avid collector of pulp fiction magazines. He pursued a Bachelor
of Science degree in physics, and pure and applied mathematics at King's
College, London. Clarke became chairman of the British Interplanetary
Sociey and recruited George Bernard Shaw as well as many other new members
in the mid 1940s. He met C.S.Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein at Oxford. Clarke
published his first novel Prelude
to Space in 1947. He was awarded a CBE in 1989 and was knighted
in 1998. Today, Sir Arthur lives in Sri Lanka and continues to amaze everyone
with his unique foresight and creative thought.

|The Invisible Man: A Grotesque Romance (Campfire Graphic Novels) -H.G. Wells - - Used Book in Good Condition 'The stranger came early in February, one wintry day, through a biting wind and a driving snow.' |
When the residents of Iping first see him, he is wearing an overcoat and goggles, and is covered from head to toe with bandages. His hidden identity and mysterious behavior causes the locals to start asking questions. At first they assume he must have been involved in some kind of horrific accident. But the truth is far more alarming than that.
As the reality of the situation starts to become clear, only one thing is certain; the stranger is a troubled soul and can only deal with his personal fear by terrorizing the people around him.
First published in 1897, The Invisible Man is HG Wells's warning to the world about the dangers of science without humanity.
|Book 2, Rama II -Arthur C. Clarke - Years ago, the enormous, enigmatic alien spacecraft called Rama sailed through our solar system as mind-boggling proof that life existed -- or had existed -- elsewhere in the universe. Now, at the dawn of the twenty-third century, another ship is discovered hurtling toward us. A crew of Earth's best and brightest minds is assembled to rendezvous with the massive vessel. They are armed with everything we know about Raman technology and culture.

By the twenty-third century Earth has already had two encounters with massive, mysterious robotic spacecraft from beyond our solar system--the incontestable proof of an alien technology that far exceeds our own. Now three human cosmonauts are trapped aboard a labyrinthine Raman vessel, where it will take all of their physical and mental resources to surviv. Only twelve years into their journey do these intrepid travelers learn their destination and face their ultimate challenge: a rendevous with a Raman base--and the unseen architects of their galactic home. The cosmonauts have given up family, friends, and possessions to live a new kind of life. But the answers that await them at the Raman Node will require an even greater sacrifice--if humanity is indeed ready to learn the awe-inspiring truth.
