    A sad good-bye to Ray Bradbury, one of my favorite science fiction authors. He died last night at the age of 91.

    Aw.

    Bradbury was GOOD.

    His work will live on, though.

    RIP, Ray.

    I grew up reading Ray Bradbury stories. "Where are the Martians?" "Look at our reflection in the water." He wasn't overly technical with sci-fi gadgets and his stories (the short ones in particular) read more as fantasy, which I love.

    I read that he had a stroke a while ago and has been in a wheelchair, but he didn't stop writing. Last novel I've found was published in 2009 and last play in 2010. Not bad fo a nonagenarian.
