RIP Ray Bradbury

Just found out one of my all time favourite writers sci-fi master Ray Bradbury died in LA yesterday. He was 91. :(

He wrote the most amazing stories....I have a collection of his stories as radio plays on my MP3 player which I listen to often as well as many of his books on my library shelves.  Amoung my favs of his written stories are The Martian Chronicles (collection), Dark They were and Golden Eyed (short story - all time fav), Something Wicked This Way Comes (novel) and All Summer in a Day (short story). His most famous work was Fahrenheit 451. I started reading his short stories when I was about 8 or 9 years old. He shaped who I am as a writer today....I can only hope that someday I will be half the writer he was.

It is a dark day indeed when we lose such an artist.

We will all miss you dearly but your stories will live on forever! I hope wherever you are you're drinking Dandelion Wine and having a blast!
