    Oh, wow. That's so sad. I love his short stories like The Pedestrian, The Veldt, Dark They Were, and Golden-Eyed, and All Summer in a Day. He was a truly smart man. I plan on reading Fahrenheit 451 this summer.

    I think this poem by Byron, that he had in the martian chronicles is a fitting farewell:

    SO, we'll go no more a-roving
    So late into the night,
    Though the heart be still as loving,
    And the moon be still as bright.
    For the sword outwears its sheath, 5
    And the soul wears out the breast,
    And the heart must pause to breathe,
    And love itself have rest.
    Though the night was made for loving,
    And the day returns too soon, 10
    Yet we'll go no more a-roving
    By the light of the moon.

    I've heard several interviews with on the radio. In addition to being a tremendous writer and visionary, he seemed like a really great guy.

    My favorite story about him is the time he was giving a lecture at Berkley. He was explaining he wrote Fahrenheit 451 as a story about the evils of TV. The students were actually arguing with him that his book was about government censorship. So he said fuck it and walked out.

    It seems he didn't care much for machines.

    “We have too many cellphones. We’ve got too many Internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.”

    Bradbury wrote darkly about bookburning in “Fahrenheit 451,” but he sounds ready to use a Kindle for kindling. “I was approached three times during the last year by Internet companies wanting to put my books” on an electronic reading device, he said. “I said to Yahoo, ‘Prick up your ears and go to hell.’ “

    I read a lot of science fiction many Martian moons ago & Ray Bradbury was one of my favorites. He brought a smooth realism to the most mindblowing stories. Goodbye Ray & thanks for the wonderful stories.
