Fountains

Would just like to reiterate others comments about The Fountains of Paradise. Superb book!! Sadly I wont be alive to see a space elevator built. I think its just a matter of waiting for materials science to catch up.

Unhappy

Thanks Iain M

Eventhough I knew it was going to happen I didnt expect it to happen so soon. Great author and I will sadly miss his SF works. Just loved the Culture and the Minds. Always looked forward to his next book.

Personal favourite was Look to Windward - awesome.

Need to find someone with the same vision!

A very very sad day.

RIP Iain M
