A Master Never Leaves When His Words Remain Behind
Rest in Peace, Ray Bradbury. Thank you for writing the first genre book I'd bought on my own with my own money (Farenheit 451) and which made me want to write stories ever since. Thank you for your inspriation, your short stories and novels, your gleeful breaking of grammar for the sake of the story, and most of all for your sheer JOY all of your life in writing and imagining and being exactly - EXACTLY - who you were supposed to be. And for sharing that Joy with all of us every moment of your life.
A faithful reader and fallen writer who yearns for that joy to return.
