This morning the sad news broke that one of the world’s most beloved sci-fi authors, Ray Bradbury, died at the age of 91. Various news stories have appeared in generic viagrapularizer-of-science-fiction-dies-at-91.html?pagewanted=all”>The New York Times, io9, and wabc. (Hat tip to revgeorge for the news and links.)
Here at The Hog’s Head, we had celebrated Bradbury’s work and influence during our annual October run-up to Halloween in 2011.
Please feel free to add your thoughts about the creator of sci-fi and dystopian favorites like The Martian Chronicles and Fahrenheit 451. May you rest in peace, Mr. Bradbury!
