ARTHUR C. CLARKE
Clarke signed this clipped title page from his 1951 novel The Sands of Mars
Inscribed signature: "To Jane Hays,/with all good wishes/Arthur C. Clarke" in blue ink. 5x2½. Written on a fragment of the title page from his book, The Sands of Mars (1951). Clarke (1917-2008, born in Minehead, Somerset, England) 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 toned. Page has been torn neatly from book on left. Otherwise in fine condition.
