Highly esteemed science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury, passed away on Tuesday, June 5, 2012.
He was 91 years old.
I first read Bradbury because Fahrenheit 451 was a requisite in high school. This was one of the first books that I read where I remember thinking, “Why are we reading this? This is really good.” I think I even started using the school library, but don’t tell anyone. I will loose my street cred.
As if his literary career was not impressive enough, I was blown away when I looked into his film and television career. Check out his IMDb page. Amazing. When did he sleep? How did he make it to 91 under such a workload?
Looking at his over his life it’s easy to see how he lived such a remarkable life.
