Ray Bradbury, Author Extraordinaire, has died on June 5, 2012, at the young age of 91. I remember spending much time as a kid reading stories from Mr. Bradbury, Asimov, and others of his time. I’m not sure I’ve since found an author that has quite captured Science Fiction quite like he did. Not that he considered himself a Science Fiction author.
“I’m not a science fiction writer,” he was frequently quoted as saying. “I’ve written only one book of science fiction [“Fahrenheit 451”]. All the others are fantasy. Fantasies are things that can’t happen, and science fiction is about things that can happen.”
