Farewell, Arthur C. Clarke; so long, Anthony MinghellaBy Ángel Domínguez
How sad it is to report this; the creative genius that was Arthur C. Clarke, science fiction writer, died today at the age of 90. Clarke was responsible for some of the most famous books in the genre, such as “Rendezvous with Rama” and the sensational short story “The Sentinel”, which later led to the 2001 saga; he stimulated the minds of millions of people throughout the world, and went beyond the constraints of the written word seeing his work reflected on film and even in the revolutionary music album “The Songs of Distant Earth“, by Mike Oldfield.
But that’s not the only sad note of the day, we also have to report the death of cinema director Anthony Minghella, awarded for movies like “The English Patient” and “The Talented Mr. Ripley”
