A Sketch for Ray Bradbury

I just heard that Ray Bradbury passed away.  And I'm still in the middle of The Illustrated Man.  Bradbury is one of my favorite storytellers, weaving stories of a future that is simultaneously beautiful and bleak, and sometimes wryly hilarious. And sometime his stories simply chill you to the bone.  I only have to think of the title of "There Will Come Soft Rains" and my throat tightens.   Bradbury was brilliant; I wish I had started reading his work years ago.
