R.I.P. Ray Bradbury: 1920 – 2012

The fantastic author Ray Bradbury passed away yesterday.  Over the years I have dived into many a Bradbury story, and from them pulled great enjoyment.  Something Wicked This Way Comes and A Graveyard for Lunatics were fantastic in their chilling suspense.  The Martian Chronicles is still one of my favorite works of science fiction.  Fahrenheit 451 will always be a haunting image of a dystopic future where reading books is a crime. Zen in the Art of Writing is one of the best contemplation on writing I have ever encountered. Add to these his multiple short stories and essays and I was provided with a prolific repetoir of thoughts and styles and stories about strange people and stanger places.  I am greatful for the great works he created in his life.  I am sure their greatness will continue onward.  And I am also sure that Mr. Bradbury will be missed.
