    Damn!

    Well, he's had a long enough haul - and well deserved it was. One of the top three science fiction writers in the world.

    Hey, I still have "Quicker than the Eye" on my to-read stack. That's going to the top, now.

    Great writer. I read a lot of his stuff in the 60s in Junior High and High School.

    How many old writers receive this sort of tribute?

    There is an Afterword in that book that is marvelous, and speaks well to my memories of all the Ray Bradbury stories I've ever read.

    But do wait until you've read all the rest of the stories in the book. You will find it well worth the wait.
