I have just finished reading Glide Path, the only non-SF novel by Arthur C. Clarke. It's clearly based on Clarke's own experiences during World War Two working on "ground controlled descent" (talking an aircraft down in conditions of poor visibility, using the newly invented, secret technology of radar.) I found it surprisingly character-driven for Clarke, although there is all the fascination with technology you would expect. It was quite enjoyable, although rather episodic and low-key.

Any thoughts?
