    Oh man, so sad. He has a small piece in this week's New Yorker, too. Just made me think about him as I was reading it this weekend.

    I was just coming here to post this. Sad to see him go, though he did live a very long and productive life. I haven't read him in a number of years, but I have quite a bit of his work and should go back over at least some of it. What a wordsmith he was.

    I listen a lot to Radio Classics on Sirius- always great to hear his stories, Heinlein's etc executed in the condensed pulp formats they so often wrote for.

    I had the fifth- bought long ago at a garage sale. I think it's long gone.

    :( sad. Fahrenheit 451 was an introduction to dystopian literature for me and one i should revisit.

    still remember getting so excited when i found out guy montag was a firebat in starcraft..
