    A good, long life. I had to read Farenheit 451 in high school. I also remember that Carl Sagan named his "Ship of the mind" on his Cosmos series "Dandelion Wine" after a Bradbury story.

    I used to love to watch The Ray Bradbury Theater. RIP

    I had a book Ray Bradbury signed. He drew a little picture on the flyleaf too. I gave that book to my son in case it was worth something someday.

    Just don't take it to the Pawn Stars guys. They're going to want paperwork on it and if you don't have it, Rick will call in a buddy of his who's an expert in autographs and once the autograph is substantiated, off camera Rick will say he really wants it, then to you, he'll undercut you on the price so he can sell it for 3 times he bought it from you for.
