Today is a very sad day in the literary world. Today, we lost the illustrious Ray Bradbury, author of one of my favorite novels (a work in my personal canon), Fahrenheit 451. If you haven’t already read it, do yourself a solid and pick up a copy of this text, which serves as a warning of the devastation we would all experience in a world with no books. I shudder to think of the possibility. And if you find yourself enjoying an adult beverage this evening, raise your glass (or bottle) to drink a toast to the peaceful rest of a brilliant writer and visionary.
Rest in peace, Ray Bradbury. Your presence in this world will be sorely missed.
