    Re: Ray Bradbury: RIP

    I loved The Illustrated Man. He was an extraordinarily gifted writer, and not just sci-fi. Sad news.

    I've probably read Fahrenheit 451 a half-dozen times.

    Ripe old age but still makes me feel like crying. Maurice Sendak recently too.

    If you haven't seen Stephen Colbert's Sendak interview look it up. One of the funniest I've seen.

    Re: Ray Bradbury: RIP

    Even if he was 91, it's sad to see the last of the "old guard" of Sci-Fi pass away. I'm sure he, RAH, and Asimov will enjoy their "heavenly" debates, even if RAH didn't necessarily believe in a heaven.


    rocks!

    For a mildly NSFW tribute to Ray Bradbury just do a google search for "Ray Bradbury and Rachel Bloom"
