RIP Ray Bradbury, story on CNN.com.


Science fiction author Ray Bradbury, whose imagination yielded classic books such as "Fahrenheit 451," "The Martian Chronicles" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes," has died at 91, his publisher said Wednesday.

He was inspiring, to say the absolute least.

He lived in peace and will continue to live forever in his words and thoughts.
I knew of his illness and I am sure that he has found relief and a new beginning. We on this earth have been enriched and challenged to strive and create.

Remember Ray and his work.

A fellow Illinoisan, born nearby where I live, Bradbury was born in Waukegan, IL. Loved reading his books. He will be missed by many.

Read "The Illustrated Man" in an SF as Literature class in high school. What little the teacher knew about SF&F she learned the previous summer. Picked some winners, though - Childhood's End, Planet of the Apes, R.U.R. My girlfriend and I wound up helping teach the class the next semester......

All I can add to what has already been said is "Thanks, Ray".

As long as his works are read and enjoyed, he will still be with us.
