*sigh* He was getting old and not in great health so it's not unexpected, but still. I was really hoping to somehow find a way to meet him before this happened. I got hooked on his books after reading "Childhood's End" when I was in around 6th grade and read everything I could get my hands on by him. This is definitely a major loss to science fiction and in general.

This is a list of the 50 most significant science fiction/fantasy novels, 1953-2002, according to the Science Fiction Book Club. The instructions seem to be different for everyone posting these things, so I'll bold what I read and italicize the ones I own but haven't read yet (the only one I never finished was Red Mars, which I finally gave up on about 150 pages in because it was boring politics and I had no sympathy for the characters other than one minor one, which fortunately isn't on the list). I put asterisks next to some of my favorites, although some of them I read too long ago to be sure.
