One of the most significant figures in the world of science fiction, writer Arthur C. Clarke, has been digitized. Thirty-five titles by Clarke, including the 2001: A Space Odyssey, will be released in digital format for the first time in the U.S. The availability comes with an announcement made by independent e-book company RosettaBooks.

You can now browse and purchase Clarke’s available e-books at Amazon, the Nook store and Kobo for $8.99 per title.

Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey was famously adapted into the classic Stanley Kubrick film of the same name. The book’s sequel, 2010: Odyssey Two, was also adapted for film, but failed to match the significance of its predecessor. Other Clarke works that are also now available as e-books include The Fountains of Paradise and Rendezvous with Rama.

Clarke died in 2008, at age 90, in his home in Sri Lanka.
