Ray Bradbury Has Passed On

Of all the authors I have read, three have had an indelible impact on me and my writing–H.P. Lovecraft, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ray Bradbury.  I will never forget the first time I read The Martian Chronicles.  If  in my entire career I write one thing even approaching the beauty of “Night Meeting” or the heart-rending tragedy of “There Will Come Soft Rains,” I will consider my life a success.

Fare the well, Ray Bradbury.  The greatest adventure of them all awaits you.
