~ Ray Bradbury
As for me, I shall remember Ray Bradbury as the only Sci-Fi author I was ever made to read in grade school. That may seem insignificant but the assignment of Fahrenheit 451 is an iconic memory for me. As a burgeoning academic with immense respect for eduction, this act with his books legitimized the genre for me. In a strange way, because of this author, I felt it was OK to write science fiction and fantasy myself.
