Still writing at 91! I think Fahrenheit 451 was the first work of dystopian sci-fi I ever read, or rather, devoured.

Rest in peace.

Of his short stories, my favorite was There Will Come Soft Rains; of his novels, Something Wicked This Way Comes. Cooger and Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show! The moods he spun...

Thank you and RIP, Mr. Bradbury.

He was so amazingly prolific -- I'm still working my way through the anthologies. With him gone, though, we've lost the last of that generation of science fiction writers.

I met him at a book signing when I was a wee little lad after I saw The Martian Chronicles miniseries from the library. I also read the books and have two signed items from him. He was very welcoming and somewhere in that memory box of mine, I have a picture with him.
