rip ray bradbury

I just heard that Ray Bradbury died. Sigh! Sad! I remember discovering The Martian Chronicles & Fahrenheit 451 at the library when I was in junior high. My favorite has always been Something Wicked This Way Comes which I read when it first came out.

He definitely had an effect on me and many of my friends as we grew up.

I taught a class in Science Fiction at the University of Connecticut in the early 1970's. I included Fahrenheit 451 on the reading list it being the more political work. The strange and creepy weirdness of Something Wicked... has stayed with me however.
