Ray Bardbury's "A Sound Of Thunder" was the first science fiction story I ever read (2nd grade). I've been a fan ever since. Huge loss. RIP, Ray. Thanks for starting me on a journey that continues to this day.

I think the man himself put it best: "Is Death important? No. Everything that happens before Death is what counts."

Thank you, Mr. Bradbury.

Guy was my favorite author growing up as a kid and probably stayed that way. I found an enormous collection of all of his short stories and read them over and over again along with the novels. I really think he helped mold the way I look at writing as well. He did some very funny things with adjectives and verbs.

It's too bad he's gone, but when you turn ninety you're basically just waiting your turn.

I read Ray every spring and summer, I don't know what it is about spring and summer but I try to read at least a short story if not a longer novel every year.

I read to my daughter every (just about every) night and we went through the Little House books and I was looking for something different to read to her and I realized that I started reading Ray around her age so I went to Dandelion Wine. It is a story centered around his childhood back in the 20's and 30's and still translates well to kids about 9-12 and adults who want to recapture growing up. I highly recommend it.

Back in high school we had to read Farenheit 451 and I was so happy when I saw it on the reading list because I had read it about 3 times before then. Still a great book.

I felt I lived Something Wicked this Way Comes back in the summer of '77 with my friend Danny Reed in Coldwater Michigan.

There was nothing like watching Twilight Zone episode based on Ray's works late at night during summer break.

Rest in Peace Ray and thanks for allowing me to bring your adventures where ever we lived when I was a kid.
