Ray Bradbury, along with Heinlein, Asimov, and Clarke, was one of the greatest science fiction and fantasy writers who has ever lived. "The Illustrated Man", "The Martian Chronicles", "Fahrenheit 451", and "Something Wicked This Way Comes", are among the classics he authored.

Somewhere The Veldt has gone silent, and everything has paused for a few moments of silent tribute.

R.I.P. Mr. Bradbury

Ray Bradbury, enduring author of fantasy, science fiction, dies at 91 - latimes.com

He was a very close fourth in my favourites, with Asimov, Heinlein and Clarke; and they're in no particular order.

I just saw this on another forum. Sad. Some of the best writers came out of that era. Don't forget Herbert, you guys.

Unfortunate indeed. I remember reading the Veldt in school and loving it.
