    Ray Bradbury, RIP

    Ray Bradbury, one of the greatest ever science fiction authors - sneck, one of the greatest ever authors, has died at the sprightly age of 91.

    His most famous work is Fahrenheit 451, which depicts a world where "firemen" go around burning books. My faves are The Silver Locusts (which depicts an attempted colonisation of Mars) and The Illustrated Man (a collection of short stories) - but he wrote much more work than that. Much, much more.

    I rate him alongside Kurt Vonnegut and Philip K **** as an author. The fact all three of them wrote SF is somewhat of a coincidence - sure, SF is one of my favourite genres, but Bradbury, Vonnegut and Di_ck were geniuses anyway, regardless of what genre they wrote in. Bradbury's passing has made our world so much poorer.

    You'll be sorely missed, Ray. I hope we meet up one day.

    Yeah Bradbury is up there with Vonnegut for sure, true great American writers in the league of Twain.

    Social comment intertwined in their own styles, done in some cases in a rather sneaky manner.

    The movie adaptation of "Something Wicked This Way Comes" is an all time Halloween favorite of mine.
