Author Bio: Arthur C. Clarke

Arthur C. Clarke is considered one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time. He is best known for his novel 2001: A Space Odyssey, for which he also coauthored the screenplay with Stanley Kubrick for the 1968 Academy Award–winning major motion picture. Besides winning a number of Hugo and Nebula awards, he was awarded the Kalinga Prize, a UNESCO award for popularizing science. He was knighted by the British monarchy and is the only science fiction writer to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. He is an international treasure in many other ways: An article written by him in 1945 led to the invention of satellite technology. His books of both fiction and nonfiction have more than one hundred million copies in print worldwide.
