‘Fahrenheit 451′ Author Ray Bradbury Dies at 91

This morning I was surprised to see the headline of Bradbury's death.
I have been a science fiction fan for a long time.
Above all Bradbuy was a special writer for me.

I began reading science fictions when I was in the first year of junior high school.
A classmate lent me a book, and I found it interesting. It was Fredric Brown's "Angels and Spacehsips."
After reading it, I went to a bookshop to buy another science fiction.
It was at that time when I first met Bradbury's works.
I chose the thickest one and it was Bradbury's "The Octobeer Country."
I still don't know why I chose the thickest book. Maybe it was because I was fascinated by the fantasic cover by Joseph Mugnaini.
Anyway I began reading Bradbury's works. I loved all of them.

When I entered high school, I began reading lots of science fictions. I read as many as 100 books or more in the first year.

Then I became eager to read my favorite Bradbury's novels in its original language, English.
I went over to Maruzen bookstore, the only bookstore that dealt with foreign books at that time.
Fortunately I found Bradbury's "The Golden Apples of the Sun". It was a collection of short stories and it was the first foreign book I bought.
I read some of my favorite stories using a dictionary and Japanese trranslation.

If it had not been been for Bradbury, I might not have begun learning English.

In this sense, Ray Bradbury was the most important writer for me.
