Sir Arthur C. Clarke was considered one of the "Big Three" by many in the Science Fiction community.  The Big Three consisting of:  Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and (of course) Sir Arthur C. Clarke.

One of his best known works is probably 2001: A Space Odyssey - which he wrote with Stanley Kubrick.
