I gobbled up Farenheit 451 and the Martian Chronicles as a young kid. Thanks for stimulating my mind Mr. Bradbury -- you were a visionary and your work will live on.

Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, the list is growing longer and longer. Great writers are leaving us, good literature has come to its end, we are subjected to all sort of intellectual crap - from ads, newspapers, TV screens. We still have a core set of values that allows us to resist, but what will happen to the new generation? Frank Borneman and his Eloy band have some gret songs about this.
Sad....

Mr. Bradbury was a phenomenal writer!

I love the book "Something wicked this way comes."

All the authors I read as a boy (and I still read a lot of their books) have gone and there are no current author as good. Heinlein, Asimov, Bester, VanVogt, Clarke, now Bradberry; all gone. I miss them all.
