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.

Thanks to Summertime for letting me know about these new stamps being issued by the Royal Mail UK. "Magical Realms" stamps featuring characters from fantasy stories, including Harry Potter. Other stories featured include the legend of King Arthur, the Chronicles of Narnia, and Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.
See the similiarites below between me and my alter ego
and for those who didn’t know where the name Rincewind comes from, it’s from a brilliant series called ‘The Discworld’ by Terry Pratchett. Love the coward wizard who runs away from danger but always ends up being the involuntary hero of the story.

Hmm… wasn’t sure if I was going to put this blog post under mixed stuff or Sexy pictures just because of my hot sexy face there. LOL!
