Speaking of Grand Old SF Writers

Ray Bradbury is 90. I still have my 60s paperbacks of his, crumbling gently behind the Leon Garfields from the 70s. Cannot bear to throw them out, know better than to try rereading. He was a very good writer to read at 14-- sensa wunnda out the wazoo. But even then I suspected that a lot of his work was seriously overwritten.

So hippo birdies and all, Ray, but you make me feel old.
