    A man of vision and imagination. Sad to hear he has passed.

    This great man had a vision for the future that was remarkable accurate. Imagine conceptualizing satellite communication way back in 1948, space travel, and so much of what we take for granted today. A.C.C. was a true visionary, and a great entraining writer to boot. We will miss him greatly.

    I grew up with his books and they gave me a love for reading. A VERY sad loss, he will be missed.

    This is the first I've heard of this. I've enjoyed his writing very much over the years. A very sad loss...
