Science and magic
I have a brief essay on the late Arthur C. Clarke in tomorrow's L.A. Times. Tomorrow in print—today online!
A couple of side notes:
1) Clarke uses the Keelerian word "web-work" at one point. But I failed to write down the page number and now I'll never find it!
2) Part II of Childhood's End, entitled "The Golden Age," must have influenced Chris Reynolds's comics?! (Here's my crazy "Connections" post from way back when.) In The Dial, the Earth has been taken over by alien overlords...and there's a story called "The Golden Age"...
