rip Ray Bradbury your short story about a house from far in the future that still performed its daily tasks even though the family was obliterated by a nuclear bomb really disturbed my fragile 9-year-old mind

The Illustrated Man was my favorite book for a while.
He will be missed, even if he was kind of a dick later on.

Bradbury rocked. He had a good run, though.

A classic, chilling cautionary tale, and I'm killing myself in my mind for not remembering the title.

Nope, mine was There Will Come Soft Rains. The Veldt is also about a future house but in the end the kids murder the parents.

Man, Bradbury was a messed up dude

Thanks, Milhouse.

I had "The Illustrated Man" in my house growing up and always wondered what it was about, and never read it until I was about 12 years old. Never looked back.

I had only just found his stuff, due to Radio 4 re-broadcasting 'Bradbury 13'. I feel like I've been gypped out of a new favourite author.
