R.I.P. Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury — author of The Martian Chronicles,Fahrenheit 451,Something Wicked This Way Comes, and many more literary classics — died this morning in Los Angeles, at the age of 91.

In case you were wondering, I was inspired to use Salamander as my online handle over 20 years ago, and it is in reference to the fire truck and symbol used by Guy Montag and the other firemen in Fahrenheit 451.
