    Quite a futurist/visionary.

    A very talented writer. He is best remembered for The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, and Fahrenheit 451. I will miss him......R.I.P. Ray

    In shock -- Been married to Mrs. Fluffybear for nearly 16 years and I just learned that she not only read many of his books but considered him to be one of her favorite writers.

    Two of my favorite Ray Bradbury quotes:

    • "Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity."
    • I don't try to describe the future. I try to prevent it."

    My favorite quote of his is: "There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them."

    Living to 91. From USA Today:
    Sounds like it was time. RIP

    I went through a SciFI reading stage in Junior High school (7-8 grade). During that time I read many Bradbury works starting with R is for Rocket followed by S is for Space then the Illustrated Man. It pretty much hooked me on the genre even to this day.
    Thanks Ray.
