One of the great authors of the 20th century passed on yesterday, at the age of 91. I have always been inspired by his willingness to break the rules and do it his way, and by his refusal to grow up or conform! I still think he should have stuck to his guns and refused to allow "Fahrenheit 451" to become an e-book, but I'm sure it is making his daughters a lot of money right now...

Yeah...he wrote such great stuff! The Martian Chronicles were a favorite of mine...up there with Tolkiens trilogy I would say!
I know he will be missed...but he had a great life 'here'. Said; 'Spend every day creating something new'. Words for us to live by...

Yes, he will definately be missed. It's always sad when a great writer's time has come.
