Ray Bradbury Has Died. Dammit

1920-2012
The man published his first book in 1938. He married his wife in 1947, and remained married to her until her death in 2003. When he was 19, he met Ray Harryhausen, and they have remained close friends for the rest of their lives, Harryhausen having adapted Bradbury's shot story The Fog Horn into The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. He has an award for literature named after him. He has well over 400 novels, short stories, screenplays, stage plays and non-fiction works to his name. In terms of his influence on science fiction, and literature in general, he's probably only bested by H.G. Wells, Jules Verne and Isaac Asimov.

His headstone will read "Author of Fahrenheit 451."

I've got nothing to say, really. I'm just going to go read.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
