Yes. Clarke was one of the Big Three, certainly, but the cadre of Grand Old Men is a bit larger.

I'm sad to hear about Clarke, but when Bradbury dies, I'll cry my eyes out.

I dunno, to me that was always Asimov, Heinlein, and Clarke.

For me, Bradbury, Clarke, and Pohl, though I liked Asmiov and the other good old boys.
