Flasher Bio: Clarke O'Gara

Clarke tries to get an element of Science-Fiction into all of his stories. Some might say this makes him a science-fiction writer, he'd agree.

Clarke's biggest achievement in life was winning 'Member of staff you would most like to be stuck in a lift with', he is just a bit more proud of this than he is of his degree, but perhaps other writers really want to be rock stars as well.

Clarke's other interests include Atheism, Libertarianism, Music and Psychology of Influence/Suggestion.

Flasher Reverso Action

***Management Note: We have been challenged by Mike Ivsin to come up with a suitably flashy illustration/photo for his work. Please email any entries to for posting.***

The story has it that Archimedes had the cone volume formula inscribed on his tombstone. While this story could be difficult to verify, a much better story would be that he threw a great party and gave everybody a hat. The tradition of the cone shaped party hat would then have been started by Archimedes and it would also have become the longest surviving tradition in the history of the world. There. Then one guy built an arch in the honor of Archimedes and the world was never the same since. As you may well imagine, the guy called himself the architect.
