Sadness.  I was surprised to hear he was only 91.  felt like he’d been around for centuries.  his writing WILL be around for centuries.
when we do finally land on Mars,  whatever wonders we find there will pale in comparison to the dreamscapes of the Chronicles.
“Martian Chronicles is not science fiction, it’s fantasy. It couldn’t happen, you see? That’s the reason it’s going to be around a long time — because it’s a Greek myth, and myths have staying power.”  –Bradbury, 1999
so now Shadow Show will be a post-humous tribute.  sadly fitting.  one can see the editor (and DeathScribe 2008 celebrity judge) Mort Castle at the Printers Row Lit Fest, Sunday the 10th.  At the Horror Writers Association booth.
