RIP Ray Bradbury.

Posted on

“My stories run up and bite me in the leg — I respond by writing down everything that goes on during the bite. When I finish, the idea lets go and runs off.”

-Ray Bradbury

We’re sad to learn that one of our favorite authors, Ray Bradbury, has passed away today. He was 91 years old, a literary classic, and an influence and inspiration to many.

We have several of his books, including his acclaimed classic, Fahrenheit 451, about a future in which they burn the printed word. No books! It’s a dark place indeed.

We hope you’ll come and check it and some of his other works out, and we’ll leave you with one last quote from the master…

“People ask me to predict the future, when all I want to do is prevent it. Better yet, build it. Predicting the future is much too easy, anyway. You look at the people around you, the street you stand on, the visible air you breathe, and predict more of the same. To hell with more. I want better.”

  1. Ray Bradbury was my all-time favorite writer, and I believe I can extend that to say favorite person as well. He was an amazing writer, so I’d be hard pressed to narrow down a favorite story, but “All Summer In A Day” immediately enters my mind, followed by many others. I miss him greatly. He has been an inspiration for me to keep going and not give up.
