R.I.P Ray Bradbury (1920 – 2012)
Miskatonic Books would like to give our condolences to the family and friends of one of the most amazing authors of our time, Ray Bradbury.
Bradbury with 27 novels and over 600 short stories was a prolific writer and is most widely known for his dystopian classic “Fahrenheit 451,” released in 1953, but he also wrote the widely read “The Martian Chronicles” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”
President Obama gave a statement on Bradbury:
“For many Americans, the news of Ray Bradbury’s death immediately brought to mind images from his work, imprinted in our minds, often from a young age. His gift for storytelling reshaped our culture and expanded our world. But Ray also understood that our imaginations could be used as a tool for better understanding, a vehicle for change, and an expression of our most cherished values. There is no doubt that Ray will continue to inspire many more generations with his writing, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.”
Today we have lost a hero of fantastic fiction, but thankfully, he has left us a vast library of his profound work to ponder and enjoy for many generations to come.
The world will miss you Mr. Bradbury.
