R.I.P. Ray Bradbury: The “Fahrenheit 451” author, who wrote numerous other literary classics in his day, died Wednesday at 91. ”If I had to make any statement, it would be how much I love and miss him, and I look forward to hearing everyone’s memories about him,” Danny Karapetian, Bradbury’s son, said to io9. Sad news.
What a bummer. Bradbury just wrote a short New Yorker piece about how he got into science-fiction.
This was required reading in school, and for me a vacation from shakespeare (I’ll never get it, don’t even try) and haikus from hell. I love when a writer writes a fiction piece that is so controversial. To ban a book about a world where books are banned.
