Ray Bradbury, RIP -- June 6, 2012

Ray Bradbury has died.  I'm not usually a science fiction fan, but he wrote science fiction that was very human-centered, and he wrote many stories that were not science fiction.  I first read Dandelion Wine while I was in grammar school and it made an impression on, especially the part about the trolley.  I think I head a series of  X Minus One or Dimension X adaptions of The Martian Chronicles before I read it.   He wanted to be a magician.  I went with my family to hear him speak at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater, but I was too young to remember much.
