    RIP. So many great stories, even scary ones. Zero Hour is great on Radio Classics. :(

    Me too. He got awfully weird in his old age. Among other things, he said Fahrenheit 451 wasn't about censorship. http://www.metafilter.com/61806/Its-not-about-censorship-moron

    I really didn't like his stuff very much anyway, but thanks for your service and RIP.

    One of the few books in English Lit we were FORCED to read that actually kept a "challenged" kid like me entertained and wanting to read and write more.

    I tripped out in high school, reading The Illustrated Man. All those tattoos, all those stories behind them. Cool shit.

    He was the Sci-Fi tits.
