Ray Bradbury dies.
A scifi giant passes at ripe age of 91. RIP.

Wait he wasn't dead already? :whacked:

Well, 91's a good age to finally go out on. He'll probably end up in the same batch as Eduard Khil, so he's in good company. :D

R.I.P. Ray Bradbury.

He will now bodly go where everybody has gone before (him).

What, into one of the Kardashian sister's? :xp:

Enjoyed the Martian Chronicles...RIP Ray.

Sometimes for good reasons and sometimes for bad ones, Fahrenheit 451 made a lasting impression on my thinking. My condolences to his family and to his fans.

My favorite is Something Wicked This Way Comes. Deep and creepy as hell.

RIP :(

Oh man, we lost another one. R.I.P. Mr. Ray Bradbury, you will be missed.


Reid said Bradbury was the first writer to jump from pulp magazines to mainstream literary magazines, thus bringing science fiction writing into the mainstream. Bradbury also wrote fantasy and horror.
So sort of the father of modern sci fi writings?

A void in his place that could never, shall never be filled.

Terrific writer. RIP, Ray Bradbury.

I'll miss him and his work. Mrs. Holocron wants to re-read The Martian Chronicles again after hearing the news. I'll probably re-visit The Illustrated Man myself.

Too soon, man!

Then again, The Onion had an article about him - so maybe not!

Picked up a copy of The October Country a few weeks back, his short stories have always sat well with me so I'm glad to finally own my own copy. Very saddened to see him gone. :(
