Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury (91), the author of Fahrenheit 451 and We Sing the Body Electric died in California yesterday, Tuesday, according to an item on today's Breaking News at Yahoo!

By way of tribute to the genius and memory of Ray Bradbury a post of mine which first appeared in January 2008 on Poet-in-Residence and which features a poem written in 2005 titled We Sing the Body Electric, the first poem in my pamphlet Mavericks, is now available to read here.

Ray Bradbury was a rare talent. I suspect he's now on his way to a rendezvous with the likes of Arthur C Clarke, Jules Verne and H G Wells.

Bon voyage sir! 


  1. I read RB avidly when I discovered him. My favourite was probably The Martian Chronicles (there was a good TV series based on it. I wonder what happened to that?)

    Oh, and I like your poem!

  2. Dominic,

    I never saw that TV series but I was lucky enough to see the film Farenheit 451 when it was showing at the Metro Kino in a retrospective a few years ago.

    Glad you liked the poem.
