“Everything that happens before Death is what counts.”
–Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes
Earlier this week, one of the greatest writers of our time (or any time) was taken from us. I freely admit that I might have lifted a copy of Fahrenheit 451 from my school library, and it became one of those books that just changes your perspective forever. Like The Power of Myth, 1984, and Anthem, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit spoke to me in a way that few books ever can. In addition, as an avid fan of The Twilight Zone, Bradbury holds a special place for having written several episodes of the series. So, to memorialize Mr. Bradbury, I just wanted to mark the end of the week with a post about him and top it off with a fitting tribute piece from a fellow DA Deviant, Gabriel Rodriguez.
