R.I.P. Ray Bradbury

Science Fiction author Ray Bradbury has passed away at age 91.   His most famous S.F. work was Fahrenheit 451 which was also produced as a movie.  I far as I’m concerned, Mr. Bradbury was the last of a generation.  He ranks in the the top 4 Sci-Fi writers of the 20 Century along with Sir Arthur C. Clarke, The “Dean of Sci-Fi”Robert A. Heinlein and Mr. Robotics – Isaac Asimov.

Although most well known for his book burning future in Fahrenheit 451, my favorite Bradbury inspired movie was “The Illustrated Man” starring Rod Stiger.    Some of the other films produced from Mr. Bradbury fiction include “Something Wicked This Way Comes”,  “It Came From Outer Space” (1953),  and the made for TV mini-series “The Martian Chronicles”, starring Rock Hudson.

He will be missed.
