Rest in Peace: Ray Bradbury (1920 – 2012)

“My goal is to entertain myself and others.”
— Ray Bradbury


Ray Bradbury, Master of Science Fiction, Dies at 91

Portrait by Kagan McLeod

“Pour out some dandelion wine for Ray Bradbury. Goodbye, Mr. Bradbury. See you in October Country.”
Patton Oswalt @pattonoswalt

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
— Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

All of the above covers were scanned by me from my own library; the photo, which I’ve messed up with Poladroid, is from a 2010 article on Ray Bradbury that ran on Bleeding Cool. The drawn portrait of Bradbury is by Kagan McLeod, but Poladroid is to blame for the overall green colour cast.

Keywords: The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, The Machineries of Joy, I Sing the Body Electric, Something Wicked This Way Comes.
