R.I.P. Ray Bradbury
Ray Bradbury, one of America's greatest living authors died today. Known for his great science fiction works like The Illustrated Man, The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenhet 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes. he was more than that:He was a poetic novelist. The master of Metaphor, his description was often beautuful. As an example, pick up Fahrenheit 451, thumb near the end and read Granger's description of his Greandfather--it's some of his most beautiful writing. I have lectured on him for many years. We will now have to add June 6th, 2012 as his date of passing. Rest in peace in the beauty of the Universe, Ray.
