Oz Whiston writing as Oz Drummond

Athur C. Clarke

Short post.

I read "Childhood's End" and "Against the Fall of Night" in 7th/8th grade (yes, that was a long time ago). They remain my favorites from his body of work. Both contained ideas that blew me away, bent my teenaged mind forever. Judging by what's being posted, a lot of the community was similarly affected by his writing.

My SF book club edition of "Childhood's End" has no print date, but my 60 cent copy of "Against the Fall of Night" is dated April 1970 for its 5th printing. Obviously, both are still on my shelves.

  • I Thought It Had Been Longer...

    It's felt like 2 years since I last blogged, not one. That says something about the past year, which was horrendous on a personal level. Moving isn't…
