Sad day. The irony is I am going to a graduation today where the school is banning books due to one complaint. Men like him will be missed.

Oh, man, that is SO irony.

No, wait, it isn't.

The amount of material he produced is staggering. I bet everyone knows a Bradbury story even if they don't know it's a Bradbury story. The electric grandmother? Something Wicked This Way Comes? The Veldt? A dominant talent in a genre packed with giant names. Mid-century scifi is a metropolis of skyscraper authors, and Bradbury might be the Empire State Building of them all.

He along with Asimov were my introduction to "Real" SciFi.
