Damn it - Ray Bradbury has passed away.

Of course, no one needs me to tell them about Bradbury's genius, or his many great novels and short stories.

I'll just mention that my favourite story of his has always been The Crowd - still creepy as hell after all these years.

It first appeared in Weird Tales in 1943 - see left the first page of the story and the accompanying illustration...

Also Colin Barnes wrote a great piece on Bradbury as part of the 'In Defence Of Short Stories' series - reread it here.
