Ray Bradbury, you will be missed. But your spirit will live on in your astounding body of work: 27 novels and 600 short stories.
About 22 years ago, the Martian Chronicles was the first thing I ever read by you, followed closely by Fahrenheit 451. Over the next two years, I read all of your novels and short story collections. Naturally, since you kept on producing, I kept reading it all. And eventually, I began writing, too.
You were — and are — an inspiration.
