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

Some times ago, I read an excellent interview of him in "Le Monde" (about women, books, SF...). I was impressed by his enthusiasm, humor, light and deep, so dark and optimistic at the same time ... So American and by some parts so French. A kind of Jules Verne of the XX century...

I have not the link on the "Le Monde" article, but I remember he spoke about internet like here :

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/20/us/20ventura.html?_r=3&partner=rss&emc=rss&pagewanted=all

"Yahoo called me eight weeks ago,” he said, voice rising. “They wanted to put a book of mine on Yahoo! You know what I told them? ‘To hell with you. To hell with you and to hell with the Internet.
"

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.

RIP.

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!!!

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