    out of all the books we were forced to read in grade school, Fahrenheit 451 was one of the very few that I really enjoyed.
    this turned me onto some of his other work including Dark Carnival and the Illustrated Man; both collections of sci-fi / fantasy short stories.

    I love how much philosophy he included in his writing.
    RIP Ray.

    Damn...
    He contributed to the imaginations of many, and had envisioned a future so very close to ours in Fahrenheit 451.

    Just a day before he died, a last article was published in the New Yorker.
