Great Bradbury Jun 8, 2012

His name is and will be, first of all, associated with “A Sound of Thunder”, a science fiction short story first published in Collier’s magazine in 1952. As of 1984, it was the most re-published science-fiction story up to the present time[1]. It is based on the concept that was later termed the Butterfly Effect. (From Wikipedia)

Me too.

I know it's childish, but I like to think of him exploring now galaxies, stars and planets without the limitations of gravity, breathing, or time.

Live forever Jun 8, 2012

“Death doesn't exist. It never did, it never will. But we've drawn so many pictures of it, so many years,
trying to pin it down, comprehend it, we've got to thinking of it as an entity, strangely alive and greedy.
All it is, however, is a stopped watch, a loss, an end, a darkness. Nothing.”


We have Mr Electrico to thank for having touched young Ray Bradbury with his sword and commanded,
"Live forever!"
Thankfully, magic is no fantasy, magic is real (if in doubt, just read a Bradbury book!) and so it worked.
A true genius, master of words, poet, philosopher, creator of marvels, ever playful child, scientist,
magician, inventor, dreamer... Ray Bradbury will live forever.
