R.I.P. Ray Bradbury!

At the age of 91, Ray Bradbury has followed Robert Heinlein into the great Sci-Fi mag in the sky, where editors never screw with your book titles, smile and nod at the wisdom of your writing and the royalty checks are never late.

I read his books a bit later, somewhat after the early juvenile period of my reading life, was mesmerized by Fahrenheit 451, never quite got the Martian Chronicles, but enjoyed the Illustrated Man.

Go read the Washington Post's column by Alexandra Petri.  It is worth the read.
