As a youngster I used to read Bradbury regularly. He was an icon of an era now gone.

This one has always been among my favorites:

Oh I can hardly find the words. He so shaped my imagination and sense of wonder! Illustrated Man was my fave as a kid. I read that so many times, hung on every story. I haz a sad.

Only Ray could die twice.

No disrespect to Ray Bradbury, whose work I loved dearly, but this is actually a year-old story so I’m going to move it off the featured list.

Thanks Charles.

My memory must be getting much worse than I think. I’m sure I’d have remembered this. But I don’t.

Wow, I never heard that he had died. Thanks for the update Charles.

I saw the reference to Soft Rains earlier & wondered why. That one was the second most depressing story of his. Good, mind, just depressing. I did it one year as a dramatic reading for forensics.

re: #11 William Barnett-Lewis

There’s a terrific animated short based on Soft Rains.
