Ray Bradbury

All of us owe Ray Bradbury an incredible and unpayable debt. To pigeon-hole his genius to the genres of fantasy, horror, mystery and science fiction simply misses the point. Ray Bradbury was more than a mere writer --- pure and simple. Ray Bradbury was a visionary and a model to strive for.

The ease at which he spun language and imagination to tell a tale and leave the reader with a greater meaning makes him one of the most important figures in all of literature. Whether the story was a small one or one on a grand scale; Ray Bradbury entertained and educated us; Ray Bradbury showed us the future and ourselves with all the honesty that justice can muster.

I will miss Ray Bradbury knowing that he has gone; but I revel in every word he has left behind.
