Interview with SF Grand-Master Arthur C. Clarke (Audio Link Enclosed)
..Thus Spake Zarathustra C. Clarke.
or at least thus spake Arthur C. Clarke, SF Grand-Master and Scientific Visionary, to BBC Radio 4 recently, in an interesting bio'ish Interview.
'ere's the BBC interview's blurb: "In this programme, Heather Couper hears Sir Arthur's own story and meets with family, fans and fiction writers he has influenced. His younger brother Fred remembers their childhood on a Somerset farm: Arthur was building telescopes and launching home-made rockets. Did the other children join in their brother's activities? "No!", recalls Fred with a shudder. "We kept away from the dangerous blighter".

Finally, for those who are slightly worried about me (or at least those willing to humour him and pretend they are - Ed) go away Ed, Yes, at long last, my mysteriously nocturnally spontaneously imploded ankle is finally slightly better.
(he's going to milk this for all the pity-massaging its worth - Ed)
I resent that; I'll accept pity-groping too Ed! I'm not picky.
