Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

 I just wanted to say how saddened I am by the passing of Ray Bradbury, and note how much of his work foreshadowed Steampunk (Something Wicked This Way Comes), Dieselpunk (Fahrenheit 451) and Raygun Gothic (The Martian Chronicles). I first came across his books when I was about 6 or 7 and he, more than anyone else, started me off on my lifelong love of reading. I think the first story I read was in an anthology called S is for Space, and then it was Dandelion Wine, The Halloween Tree, the books mentioned above ... all of them essential reading for lovers of alternative histories. Also, if anyone can get hold of the film version of Fahrenheit 451 - it's fascinating viewing.

My favorite book was his Dinosaur Tales anthology.

Hear hear, RIP, Ray!
