It is a sad day for Science Fiction fans and literature buffs alike.
Ray Bradbury, renowned author of many works such as Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles, has left us at the age of 91.

Like many of us, I remember fondly reading his books and enjoying watching the many film and television adaptations of his works. As his grandson is quoted as saying, that is his legacy, his body of works and them memory of them in the hearts and minds of his fans.

Many others have posted on this topic through the day, my friend Jeff Hite had some good things to say. Including an idea I can really get behind.

I suggest in his honor that you might want to try to write something new today.
