I’d read his interviews on the Paris Review and Time Magazine . He became a favorite writer to me after that, and I've been on the look out for any of his books I could find on bookstores. Unluckily, he's one of those authors who are difficult to come by here in Cebu. I currently have two of his novels (The Illustrated Man and Dandelion Wine) which I ashamedly confess I have not read yet. And in tribute to the man who wrote Fahrenheit 451 and Zen in the Art of Writing, I will read The Illustrated Man when I find it this morning.
Sad day, everyone. Also a happy one. I’m sure a lot of people will appreciate more of his works and value now that he’s no longer with us.
Requiescat In Pace, Ray Bradbury.
