totally OT, sort of : Requiescat in pace, Ray Bradbury

I just read in the New York Times that Ray Bradbury died today at the age of 91.  I can't think of anyone who isn't at least familiar with some of his works: The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, or The Illustrated Man, to name a few. His excellent Martian Chronicles was the book that started me reading science fiction many years ago; and I know that he was a huge influence on many authors in the genre.

 To someone who provided me with hours of thought-provoking reading, rest in peace.
