In case you didn’t know, Ray Bradbury passed away last week at the age of 91. Although my young heart doted on fantasy, my closed mind opened to science fiction through his storytelling. As many were, I was forever altered after reading Fahrenheit 451.
From there I ventured onto Mars with the Martian Chronicles
and into darkness with Something Wicked This Way Comes.
I found more gems in The Illustrated Man,
but my favorite has long been Dandelion Wine.
Anyone asked you what you’re reading this summer? I’ve finally decided. I’ll be reading everything I can find written by Ray Bradbury, what I already know and love and all that I have foolishly overlooked. Get to know him a bit better in the interview below.
