Something Sad This Way Comes

Ray Bradbury died today at 91.
I have Bradbury to thank for my reluctance to mentally shelve books as 'Science Fiction' or 'Fantasy' or 'Literature' as opposed to just 'Fiction' or 'Stories'.
It seems as though so many writers start their stories setting out to write a 'hard fantasy' or a 'sci-fi noir' or whatever, but it always felt like Bradbury just wrote. And we were all the better for it.
Thanks, Ray.
