He's easily one of the most accomplished, prolific and boundlessly imaginative authors there is. That this is happening to someone who's written so much about biological immortality is especially tragic.

"I'd love to see what's going to happen next, what's happening in the oceans of Jupiter's moon, Europa, and what else we'll find out just in our own solar system. And we're not far from being able to analyse the atmospheres of planets around other stars and maybe spotting the signs of life there. There's so much I would have loved to have seen."
