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).

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

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.

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..!!
