RIP Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury passed away yesterday at the age of 91. His writing was incredibly influential in my life - in particular his short stories and The Martian Chronicles. In fact, one of the best memories of my life is of a  gloomy and rainy Saturday when I dropped the Beatles White Album on the turntable to serve as the soundtrack of my first trip through Bradbury's future history of mankind's colonization of the red planet. I can't recommend his writing enough.
