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
