RIP – Ray Bradbury

His work was done anyway, and late attempts to advance what he had done weren’t going where they should have gone. But he did enough. He was no hard SF writer, but he had the imagination. One wishes more of them had the imagination rather than the science. We’ll be reading Ray Bradbury a long time after many other awarded and acclaimed authors of contemporary SF have been clean forgotten.

  1. I was most impressed with Fahrenheit 451, although I know I’ve read some of his short stories. Never read the Martian Chronicles, though. Good?
