Guillermo del Toro on the Death of Ray Bradbury

Upon hearing of the death of Ray Bradbury, author of The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, and Something Wicked This Way Comes, director Guillermo del Toro e-mailed Vulture a brief note. "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."
