Ray Bradbury

I don't have anything to add to all the great tributes to Ray Bradbury that have appeared on the Internet already. All I can say is that I remember being 12 or 14 and reading "The Fireman" in a secondhand copy of Galaxy magazine and thinking it was the most wonderful thing I'd ever read or ever would read. Then I found The Martian Chronicles and had the same feeling all over again. Those were the days.

  1. Absolutely. I discovered Bradbury when I was ten. Many of the stories were past my understanding but the few I could understand were a virtual religious experience for me. He was my first literary god. ASnd a great one.

  2. Ray Bradbury was a Giant of SF. He was one of the last ones standing.
