I keep getting Arthur mixed up with Charles, the stationery chain.
How many books do you want? I have an attic full.
Arthur was the genius who thought of satellite communication,and many other things,  long before it was technically possible.
he was reported as saying the biggest mistake he made in his life was not to patent his idea.
It would have made him one of the richest men in the history of the world.

Kip,
I think you mean Arthur C Clarke ,(Charles C Clark is a proffesor of Orthopaedic Surgery!!) but you've got an excuse, you are old like me!!
Now you've got me looking for copies of his books!!  I can remember reading some of Asimov 's but that seems so long ago I cannot remember any of the titles!  Carl Sagan, also brilliant, if only more people took onboard some of the things he said.

Gazza,
You were obviously not brought up in the Charles C Clarke,  Isacc Asimov or Carl Segan era.
I suspect more like the Harold Potter time.
Start off gently with Ladybird books and see how you go.

May I suggest the late Karl Sagen's " Pale Blue Dot "?  :) My 16 yr old G/daughter had not heard of Sagen or this short film. She was in tears at the end.  ;)

Watched it once. Boring.
May do another movie. Watching filler dry.
