Author Ray Bradbury Dies, aged 91

Have you read any of his books?

Do you have any quotes?

P.S. I'll move this thread to the author section at some point later

I've wanted to read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury for ages. I was thinking about it just this morning, actually :(

I recall reading one of his short stories on a creative writing course once, but the title escapes me. It had a really great quote, though, so I'll try and dredge it up later.

I read The October Country by Ray Bradbury last year and loved it. It's a collection of creepy short stories and shows the most amazing imagination. I'd definiely recommend it if you like The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits. I really want to read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury as well. He was a very talented author - R.I.P.

"We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out."
