Ray Bradbury, the author of such literary science fiction classics as "Fahrenheit 451," "The Martian Chronicles" and "Dandelion Wine" has died today at the age of 91.
His imaginative stories will not be forgotten, but he should also be remembered for the wisdom shared outside of his novels.
The late writer who spoke out against the defamation of books had a thing or two to say about electronic literature (such as that e-books "smell like bruned fuel") among many other topics.
His advice was mostly constructive: He advocated writing spontaneously, frequently, and with passion, reiterating the necessity of loving your craft.
