RIP Ray Bradbury

Such an amazing author and visionary mind. I read the Illustrated man first when I was 12 and fell in love with him, it didn’t help my outdoor life a bit that he also was doing the Ray Bradbury Theatre, I was stuck… Shame to see him go but he will live on in his books and in my mind.

“I’m not a science fiction writer,” he was frequently quoted as saying. “I’ve written only one book of science fiction [“Fahrenheit 451”]. All the others are fantasy. Fantasies are things that can’t happen, and science fiction is about things that can happen.”

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” – Ray Bradbury

I can recommend Vondur’s youtube channel for quite a lot of episodes from the TV-series.

  1. I haven’t read that many of his books but I really enjoyed “The Illustrated Man” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes” but as you say a sad loss to the literary world

  2. A truly awesome writer my friend, and a great video and couple of quotes to honor him as well! 😀
