  • Carl Rosenberg says:

    Bradbury was a true giant, both in science fiction, and what one might call the American fantasy tradition, together with Hawthorne, Poe, Bierce, Lovecraft, Jackson and others. Even his titles are evocative–The Illustrated Man, The Martian Chronicles, The October Country, Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Golden Apples of the Sun. I was glad to see this tribute posted here, and hope to see more features about him.

  • Carl, thank you very much for leaving your comments on Bradbury. I have long appreciated his work, and its influence on science fiction and beyond. A Google search for “science fiction” since Bradbury’s passing indicate an astounding number of posts stating the appreciation for and impact of his work. It is only fitting that TheoFantastique note Bradbury’s passing and legacy. It is also worth noting that he was lifelong friends with stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen, who is no doubt devastated by Bradbury’s passing. When Harryhausen dies another luminary of the imagination will be gone and the world will be less magical because of it. Thanks again.
