    Farewell to a legend. His contributions to science fiction are immeasurable.

    I have always loved the science fiction genre -- I read it all the time -- and Bradbury has remained my favorite author -- of any genre -- throughout the years.

    He will be missed, not just as a writer, but also as an always-active and accessible lecturer and goodwill ambassador-author.

  11. He was a truly unique and nice person, which should count for something even beyond his literary accomplishments.

    I'm sort of a dork, so I've read a lot of Ray Bradbury. He was so ridiculously prolific that some stuff was better than others. But I always admired him. And for those of us (dorks) who appreciate the scifi/fantasy genre, he was an absolute legend.

    Ray Bradbury on Politics:

    On Clinton: "Clinton is a sh*thead and we're glad to be rid of him. And I'm not talking about his sexual exploits. I think we have a chance to do something about education... We should have done it years ago." - Interview with Salon, 2001

    On Reagan: "Reagan was our greatest president. He lowered our taxes and gave the money back to the people." - At Comic-Con in 2010
