Ray Bradbury R.I.P.

I only ever read two things by him: Fahrenheit 451, which I frankly didn’t think was very good, and “The October Game”, which was well-written but way too dark, even for my tastes. He also seemed, at times, like something of a luddite.

But Bradbury liked the atmosphere of the fall and Halloween, apparently, and that’s definitely true of me as well. Someday, I’ll have to give Something Wicked This Way Comes a try.

And another thing I’ll say for the man: he came up with some awesome titles. I may not have liked Fahrenheit, but it’s a good title. Scanning his bibliography on Wikipedia, I see tons of titles that I know nothing about, but which intrigue me quite a bit.

  1. Hello, MM. I am a fan of Bradbury. His writing anyway. If I went by everyone’s beliefs, my choices would be limited. I’ve learned to try and separate artist from his her real life.

    See ya! Thingy.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
