86 and Still Writing

Yesterday Ray Bradbury turned 86 -- and he's still writing! He's also still an optimist. Read about it on CNN "Ray Bradbury forecasts highs for humanity."

I was just surfing the web and learned that in 2004 he received the National Medal of Arts. I also found a nice interview from 2001 on

About this time last year I mentioned that Ray was the first science fiction/fantasy author that I ever read. I still love him. Every fall I feel the urge to re-read his books, especially the Halloween-related ones, and I think of him every time I hear about Mars on the news. If you don't know why, visit his web site for info about Ray and his books.

Happy Birthday, Ray! May you have many, many more. Keep writing!
