A pinoeering author in scifi has left us.

Farenheit 451, Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Martian Chronicles - ever read any of these titles? I did. Farenheit 451 was required reading in my high school lit. class.
Ray Bradbury, rest in peace.
Here is a link to an article about him.

Thanks for the link, Beethoven. I just read the news myself. I'm pretty sure we had to read Fahrenheit 451 in high school, but it makes me sad that I don't remember.

I'm happy that he lived a full life, but I'm sorry we have lost such a great, ground breaking writer.

I read that he was writing every day of his life. And he was a great mentor for other writers.

He was a childhood favorite of mine. I remember getting lost in his worlds.

Rest In Peace, Ray Bradbury.
