One of the last of the golden age Speculative Fiction origionators. Say hi To Hugo Gernsback for all us sci fi geeks!

With the state the world is in, it's sad to lose a visionary of any age.

an absolutely, ABSOLUTELY talented author.

His Childhood's End, written the year of my birth is what got me into Sci Fi......amazing man, and will be missed
It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story... AGATHA CHRISTIE, Life magazine, May 14, 1956

I'm sorry to hear of this. Good old Arthur C. So many wonderful stories. I wonder when/if anyone is going to film CHILDHOOD'S END, not that they'd do it justice so it is probably just as well.
