Death is a lonely business
Not at all what this blog is about, but I must pay tribute. Ray Bradbury died today. 91, which is highly respectable. But, he is one author that has followed me from trying to read his Martian Chronicles at 12 (and then realizing there really were books that I was too young to understand), and then adoring them and his others at 14, and just the other year reading Death is a lonely business, describing Venice in the 40’s, still recongizable in my memories from the 80’s. RIP Ray.
