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!

  1. Fare thee well, Mr. Bradbury. Thank you for the hours of mind-bending pleasure you gave to a young reader.

  2. Bradbury was my introduction to science fiction. Compared to other sf writers of the day with their action-oriented, workmanlike prose, he was an artist, a painter with words, who could make you feel chills, sorrow, wistfulness, beauty, sometimes in the same paragraph.

    Farewell, Mr. Bradbury, thank you.

  3. I still can’t believe Ray Bradbury’s dead. Did he go back in time and step on a butterfly? If so, that would explain how he died and why the world is in its current state.

  4. I kind of knew this was coming; a few months ago Jim Marshall the founder of Marshall amplification the father of modern electric guitar amplification died. A month ago Carroll Shelby died. He was the only American manufacturer to ever win the world Championship of Sports Cars, lead the Ford GT40 teams to consecutive victories at Le Mans over the Ferrari team, created the Cobra sports car and the hotrod Mustang GT350. Now Ray Bradbury.

    Being 60 makes this a more common occurrence.
