ARTHUR C. CLARKE
Clarke signed and dated this small headshot of himself in 1986, one year after writing The Odyssey File - The Making of 2010.
Photograph signed: "Best wishes/Arthur C Clarke/Xmas '86". Color, 3¼x4¾. The year before he signed this photograph, Clarke had co-written The Odyssey File - The Making of 2010 with Peter Hyams, who had directed 2010 (also called 2010: The Year We Make Contact), the 1984 sequel to 2001 and based on Clarke's 1982 book, 2010: Odyssey Two. Clarke (1917-2008) was a researcher and science fiction author perhaps best known for 2001: A Space Odyssey. In 1964, the popular science fiction writer had been approached by director Stanley Kubrick, who wanted to make "the proverbial good science fiction movie." Clarke simultaneously wrote his novel, which spanned man's exploration of his universe from the savannahs of Africa to the rings of Saturn, as Kubrick was creating the film. Both debuted in 1968. Besides his sequels to 2001, Clarke has produced some of science fiction's most celebrated novels, including Childhood's End and Rendezvous with Rama, thought-provoking short stories like The Nine Billion Names of God and many essays. A resident of Sri Lanka since 1946, Clarke won two Hugo and one Nebula award, and he shared an Oscar nomination with Kubrick for 2001 in 1968. Lightly creased.Minor surface striation (not evident head on) beneath image. Otherwise, fine condition.
