Ray Bradbury: 1920-2012
Another of the great SF authors has passed away. Ray Bradbury (August 22, 1920 — June 5, 2012) is the author of SF classics such as Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and The Illustrated Man. Not only that, Mr. Bradbury was an ardent supporter of libraries and in 2009 stated, "Libraries raised me....I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years."
