    Ray Bradbury, GIANT of our time!

    Ray Bradbury is gone
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Bradbury
    If you've never read any of his books, please get one NOW and read it. Few other authors of popular fiction can touch his skill and beauty!!!

    These are MUST read books-
    The Martian Chronicles
    Fahrenheit 451
    Something Wicked This Way Comes

    Unless you are callus or thoughtless, they will have a profound effect on you.

    He will be missed but not forgotten!

    Wow, honestly, I wasn't sure he was still alive until this point. He was born in 1920. Man.

    Yes, his books and short stories are so integral to who we are now. They had some pretty sweet movies from my childhood made from them, too.

    In particular, Something Wicked this Way Comes, with Jason Robards. Love that film. I also loved this growing up:



    His works will certainly live on

    Yeah, good movie. Maybe not a perfect adaptation but it really captures the feeling

    Ray Bradbury was a true literary giant.

    He ranked among my favourite authors.
