I read all of Bradburys works when i was very young,  sad to hear of his passing, seems like all of my favourite authors have left now.

And he wasn’t afraid to poke fun at himself, either…

He will be greatly mourned and sadly missed.  He inspired many, including myself.

Rest in (fireproof) peace, Montag.

This is a hilarious video for Ray Bradbury fans if you haven’t seen it.
WARNING - it has adult language and content.

I think my favorite was always Fahrenheit 451.  Geeze I’m dating myself.  That came out in 1953, though my folks wouldn’t let me read books like that at age 10.  I think I was in high school when I finally got to read it.

Fahrenheit 451 has got to be his most famous work and very thought provoking.  A Sound of Thunder was the first thing of his I read (in Playboy no less) wink Most of the old school sci fi writers are gone So Sad.

A man who didn’t just use language but loved it, and encouraged his readers to love it too.

I’d recommend To The Dust Returned for anyone curious about more recent work.

I just watched The Beast From 30,000 Fathoms, it was based on Ray’s story The Fog Horn

...first heard about Ray’s passing in another thread.  He was and still is definitely an influence on my work as well.


He was also a close friend of one of my favourite illustrators. Charles Addams.


As I mentioned in the other thread, I had the good fortune of meeting him at a sci fi con many years ago.

His passing made the headlines today in the Chicago Tribune.  Front page, above the fold.  Heck, top story even.  (yes, I still get the actual paper)


Of course, he was from Waukegan, which is a Chicago Suburb. smile
