Still need to read loads of his stuff.

Fahrenheit is a Masterpiece.

Wonderful writer. Was just thinking about him yesterday (not in a dirty way).





sanchia -> RE: RIP - Ray Bradbury (6/6/2012 5:52:59 PM)

Another one of the masters of the field gone.




Rhubarb -> RE: RIP - Ray Bradbury (6/6/2012 6:28:09 PM)

Sad to hear, haven't read as much of his as I would have liked, but what I have is superb.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: RIP - Ray Bradbury (6/6/2012 6:52:09 PM)

America's greatest living writer. So sad.

Just read about this now - very sad news. [&:]

EDIT: A nice piece by fantasy novelist Neil Gaiman on his friend and being a fan of Bradbury here:

A sad loss. I'm a huge fan of his work, I especially loved his short SF stories. RIP.

The comments on that article are great.


quote:

At 15 I was an average and reluctant reader. My Dad, noticing my Sci-fi interests, gave me a tattered copy of The October Country and I was hooked. I enthusiastically wrote my English Literature coursework on Ray Bradbury, and was the only person in my year to get an 'A' grade. My teacher suggested I send the essay to Ray Bradbury, and helped me get his address from the library. A month or so later I got a long and personal letter from Ray which I still have to this day . 22 years later I have read and enjoyed hundreds of books but Ray Bradbury's are still up there with the best of them.


It just goes to show what sort of a man he was.

Fahrenheit 451 remains one of the best books I've ever read. RIP Ray you most awesome of writers.




great_badir -> RE: RIP - Ray Bradbury (7/6/2012 1:14:05 PM)

Back in the days when we had cable (mid to late 90s), I had a Sci Fi channel weekend ritual - Ripley's Believe it or Not (hosted by Jack Palance and his lovely daughter), followed by The Ray Bradbury Theater (sic, which I used to love) and capped off with Mike Nelson era Mysterly Science Theater (sic) 3000. I have very fond memories of that.

RIP.

I remember watching The Martian Chronicles years ago starring Rock Hudson. He represented how science fiction should be alongside Arthur C Clarke and Theodore Sturgeon.

Well done Sir..!!
