RIP. I love this man, I love his "martian chronicles" !

Sad to know about it...

Thanks (in a respectful way, of course) for sharing the (bad) news. Of course, his legacy prevails, and I very much like SciFi reading, but it saddens me the missing.

Was it him that did a horror scifi episode where American astronauts were using TI calculators to dock with the Russians in space. That we pretty scary stuff!!!


He will be missed greatly BUT he left a magnificent legacy.

I loved his books, which were among the early influences that steered me towards a career in science and technology.
