Letters of Note
I am not afraid of robots. I am afraid of people.

Be Your Own Self. Love What You Love.


Guillermo del Toro – “I feel lonelier. The world is vast and barren: Bradbury was one of the titans of fantastic fiction and a unique voice in American literature. The lyricism of his prose influenced many generations across the globe. A humanist before anything else, Bradbury nurtured my youthful hopes, my flights of fancy. His soul was gentle but his imagination was fierce.”

    In the words of Mr. Electrico, “Live forever!”, dear Ray. You will be missed.
