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!
