RIP Ray Bradbury (update)

Sf site io9 is reporting the death of the brilliant writer Ray Bradbury, author of classics like Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles. Bradbury was 91.

I devoured Bradbury as a kid, and particularly loved his short story collections. For me, his fluid, dreamy, gem-like short fictions, like The Veldt or There will come soft rains or A Sound of Thunder were doorways to a universe of wonder.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and a world of fans.

Update: NY Times moves their obit.
