...thinking about Arthur C Clarke, it occurred to me that whenever I read 2001: A Space Odyssey I have a moment where I think, "that's it! I get it at last!" and then I go and re-watch the film again and realise I still don't. :o/
I must watch the film of 2010 - I think I've only seen that the once.
Apart from 2001/2010/2063 and...ooh, one I read in the early '90s that was one of his collaborations with Gentry Lee but I can't remember what it was although IIRC it involved heavy quoting from the Cyndi Lauper song Time After Time, can anyone recommend me any of Clarke's books?
(Mind you, I think the next on the radar is American Gods, and indeed any Gaiman I've not read.)
