Ray Bradbury is an argument for self-teaching. He sat in libraries and taught himself to write such interesting stories.

I admire and respect Mr. Bradbury for his writing.

I find some of his books way too detailed and esoteric. I'm not much of a science fiction fan at all.
But I don't knock success in this business. It's a hard business to make money in, even if you are well-established/
So happy birthday, Mr. Bradbury!

I agree, he's very talented. I personally prefer George Orwell in that genre, but I have enjoyed his works as well.

Yes indeed, George Orwell. I was having a discussion of his writings with someone else in topix. They were into 1984, which was Orwell's little joke about turning 1948 around. He worked for the BBC and didn't like the way they re-wrote the news during WW2 to show the allies were winning. Heh. If GW was looking for truth, you don't find it in journalism.
I urged the topix poster to read "Down and Out in London and Paris." It's semi-autobiographical since GW really wasn't impoverished. His folks have money. And he knew how to make a living.
Speaking of earning a living, back I go to work.

Though I don't usually like science fiction, I've always enjoyed reading Bradbury.
