“All of the good, weird stories I’ve written are based on things I’ve dredged out of my subconscious. That’s the real stuff. Everything else is fake.” -Ray Bradbury
I was sad to hear that the author Ray Bradbury died. He lived a long life though. He was 91. I remember his writing leaving a big impression on me. My favorite of his was The Illustrated Man, about a man whose tattoos come to life and tell stories. I also liked his influential Dinosaur Tales, a book of short stories including one where a man travels back in time and ultimately alters the whole course of history. I remember a Twilight Zone episode based on that story.. Another in the same book The Fog Horn, also left an impression. A spooky story about a fog horn from a lighthouse drawing a sea monster out of the sea..
“If you dream the proper dreams, and share the myths with people, they will want to grow up to be just like you.” -Ray Bradbury
