'Ray Bradbury'

"If you enjoy living, it is not difficult to keep the sense of wonder"
Ray Bradbury   1920-2012

It's a sad day in Bookworld...

One of our greatest writers of speculative fiction has passed on into the greatest of adventures.

Ray Bradbury was a prolific author.  He's best known for his novels 'The Illustrated Man', 'Fahrenheit 451',  'The Martian Chronicles', screenplays, and short stories.  But, for me, my favorite of his works will always be 'Dandelion Wine', a tender, semi-autobiographical telling of a memorable summer when he was a child.  He never lost the wonder of the world.  His imagination soared through the universe, and for that, we will be eternally grateful.

Rest in peace, Mr. Bradbury.  You are missed, very much so.
