Caroline  (caro7) I'm sad. I loved his The Martian Chronicles; it is one of my very favorite sci-fi books. (I read Fahrenheit 451 too but didn't care for that one.) Have you read anything by Bradbury?

Here is the article about his death:

Liz I've read several of his books, although not in a long time. I did see him on a Sci-fi panel at UCLA back in the mid-70s along with Theodore Sturgeon, Harlan Ellison & a couple of others. He was very fond of his own writing, but delightful nevertheless.

Theresa I love and admire that phrase that Liz used: "He was very fond of his own writing." Bradbury had a great literary career (I'm not a sci fi fan so I haven't read anything of his besides 451) and that isn't easy. I'm glad to hear that he was confident enough to like his own work.

Kel | 34 comments I have read several of his books of short stories. R is For Rocket has some of my favorite stories. The story "Mars is Heaven" gave me nightmares when I read it in JR High. Loved "Dark They Were, and Golden-Eyed."
