Ray Bradbury, 1920-2012

I've read a lot of Ray Bradbury in my time.  But it wasn't until after he died that I remembered he wrote one of my favorite short stories: "The Veldt."  I think we read in school, in the fifth or sixth grade.  It's absolutely magical.  I thought about it for years after-  I even dreamed about it.  I'm convinced it wriggled its way into my writing-  an awful lot of magic pops up in unexpected places.
