Ray Bradbury has died at age 91.   Another Golden ager gone, what a shame.

And you thought Trek isn't cool.

What a shame!  The man was one of the last survivors of the Golden Age of Science Fiction.

I still remember reading some his stories in school though out my school years. R.I.P. Mr. Bradbury.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I'm sure he's enjoying a class of Dandelion Wine with his old pal Forry Ackerman.

R.I.P., Mr. Bradbury.

First discovered Mr. Bradbury via a worn paperback of "The Martian Chronicles" that was hidden on our bookshelves.  No idea where it came from, as nobody in the house read science fiction, but I loved it.  As a teenager I read through his works, and have revisited them in the last few years.  They are still great, and I keep finding new pieces in them that I'd missed before.

RIP, Mr. Bradbury, and thanks for all the stories.

When I was a kid,I joined the Science Fiction Bookclub-one of my first orders was this book-the exact dust jacket too-

I think I was 11 years old.

I read everything I could by him-the Martian Chronicles,Fahrenhiet 451,Dandolion Wine-ALL of it!
Bradbury got me into sci-fi novels. I discovered Lovecraft,Assimov,Heinlen,Clark,Pohl-so many others.

Now I'm 49 years YOUNG-thanks to people like Ray Bradbury.

Rest easy.

Shame. I was introduced to Bradbury by an X-Files Comic that had three of his short stories adapted in it. He was also a life long friend of Ray Harryhausen. Beast from 20,000 Fathoms is based off of The Foghorn.   

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

He did so much for Sci-Fi, Monster movies likely would of never been what they are now if not for "The Foghorn" which inspired "Beast From 20000 Fathoms", which pretty much launched the Atomic age monster movie.

 Bluesad R.I.P. Ray Bradbury. And thank you for helping spark my imagination with wonder from the smallest things to the largest, from small towns to other worlds and helping build in me a life long fascination for all things fantastic. Probably my favourite writer and no doubt a fave for many others, you will be greatly missed.
