At Gollancz we have the considerable good fortune to publish some of the biggest and greatest names in SF and Fantasy and to work with the most amazing backlist . . . which also means we have an astonishing archive containing some brilliant behind-the-scenes correspondence with authors which stretches back for decades. Today we take real pleasure in sharing a few photos which delighted us – of Sir Arthur C. Clarke meeting Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, and an iconic Dalek, in 1984. If you’re intrigued, you can learn more about Sir Arthur C. Clarke here.
