I don’t watch the news as much as I should so I didn’t know he had died
this March until a few days ago. It’s very sad to hear that he’s gone
now, Rendezvous with Rama was the first Science Fiction book I read. I
don’t remember how old I was, but I remember the sense of exploration it
filled me with, which started me on my quest to read as many “classic”
sci-fi writers as I could. Unfortunately though, the public library in
my town had a dismally small sci-fi section and an even smaller fantasy
one. yay censorship… But because of the lack of newer fiction I ended
up reading a bunch of older works like War and Peace and 1984.

Let’s see, besides Rendezvous with Rama I’ve read Childhood’s End, Rama
II, 2001, and The Garden of Rama, but I still haven’t read the last
installment of the Rama novels. I keep forgetting to grab it while I’m
out. XD
