There is no Frigate like a Book - Emily Dickinson

The world may lose a great visionary, but we will never lose his words.

Today (June 5, 2012) Ray Bradbury left us after 91 years of his journey here on earth. 

Mr. Bradbury was a master of science fiction showing us a future of optimism mixed with the anxieties of our contemporary society. 

Among his works he is most noted for Fahrenheit 451 - a future dystopian American where books are outlawed and ignorance is encouraged. (a little like the George W. Bush presidency) - and the Martian Chronicles.a collection of stories of people fleeing to Mars from a politically troubled Earth.

Mr. Bradbury's books have become a staple in American high schools igniting the imagination of several generations and sparking inspiration in future writers and teachers.

R.I.P. Mr. Bradbury...

“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
