    Good Friday Morning, Everyone --

    Any morning you wake up is a good morning!

    If you have time before this upcoming Wednesday, please peruse the HubNuggets Nominations this week and vote for your favorites in honor of the prolific Ray Bradbury, whom we have lost. He wrote every day for over 71 years and even until the day he died, despite having a stroke several years back.

    What's your favorite Ray Bradbury (1920 - 2012) book, short story, or film, if you have one? - Mine probably are "Uncle Einar" and all the circus stories.


    HubNuggets For Fame and Fortune - And a Tribute to Ray Bradbury, Who Wanted Neither and Earned Both

    We miss you, Ray!

      I love his early books. Probably Fahrenheit 451 is my favourite.

      "All Summer in a Day" is one of my fave short stories. I teach it every year to my 7th graders in our Bullying Awareness unit.

    Bradbury was one of the Sci-Fi "gods" I grew up with. He shall be sorely missed.

    Off to read and vote

    Patty,

    Great tribute.  My favorite is one you mentioned in your hub...The Body Electic/The Electic Grandma.

    I've read and voted.  Good luck to all the nominees.

    I read his book Fahrenheit 451 in high school and I loved it. I have a well worn copy on my shelf right now. He really inspired me and for a long time I would try to emulate his style in my own writing. He will be missed.

      That is a riveting story. I also keep a copy close at hand. Thanks for posting, Shanna11.

    In his last years Ray wrote a number of stage plays that were produced and directed by my friend Tim Owen. Here's Ray, or the back of his head anyway, closing out his play "Falling Upward"
    Most of the people on stage are members of the Celtic Arts center here in Los Angeles. Ray was a supporter of the Center.

    Ray Bradbury was an amazing writer. As a kid I picked up a copy of The Illustrated Man and was completely sucked into Ray Bradbury's world. I loved his books and I am glad that we have a tribute to him here. Great idea!

    Besides his more famous works, I really loved his short story, "The flying machine."  That story really made me think about both sides of the argument.
