Ray Bradbury – 1920-2012

June 6th, 2012 by Brian Leave a reply »

One of my favorite authors, Ray Bradbury, passed away last night. If you are a fan of character-driven science fiction, he’s definitely one to check out. My favorites are The Martian Chronicles, “There Will Come Soft Rains”, and his ultimate, in my opinion, Fahrenheit 451. He predicted so many devices that we now take for granted and wrote psycho dystopian before psycho dystopian was cool. If you like Divergent or Hunger Games, both owe a lot to Ray Bradbury’s style.

The L.A. Times has a great obituary.
