So Long, Ray Bradbury. Thanks For All The Stories . . . . . .

Prominent science fiction author Ray Bradbury has died at the age of 91.  All I can say is that, while he will be sorely missed by all who loved his work, his contributions to the world of literature will live on forever.  Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, and Something Wicked This Way Comes are only a few of the most well-known examples of his literary works.

Here are some links that may be worth your while if you'd like to know more about his life and accomplishments.


  1. My late husband used to read Ray's books.
    Sorry to learn of his passing, may he R.I.P.


  2. I've never read his fiction, but I've heard of it and intend to read it in the future. He lived a long life and that's something to celebrate, not to mention that he added such wonderful contributions to science fiction. What an inspiration!

  3. Oh no.... he is one of my favorite authors. I adore him!

  4. I heard about his death the other day. It's such a shame, but at least he gave us so many wonderful books. He'll always be remembered by them.

  5. The world lost a true master in Ray. He was an amazing talent who published over 500 works in his life. I'm still working on my first...

    RIP, Ray.

  6. So sad the world will miss him.
