I agree with the writer of the article. The label of science-fiction and fantasy is incorrect. Bradbury's writing is more. Maybe a different word needs to be invented...(like Asimov inventing the word 'robot') ...a totally different word to distinguish Bradbury's fine body of work. It does, after all, stand alone in that wide world of fiction.

Inventing a single word to describe Ray's work?

Tall order, indeed. Let me get back to you... Smiler

I went to that link and made a comment about Ray and the award. I spelled 'Pulitzer' wrong. My apologies... Cool

Doug Spaulding: Don't you think it sounds too Orwellian? Or Barbarian? It's a mix of specicialized poetry, metaphoricals (!!), and Bradbury's indisputable imprint. Maybe not exactrly Bradbur-ian..but along the lines of Bradbury-something.

Bradburyian, Bradburyesque, Bradburyous. Bradbulous? Raytastic?

How about Poetic Prose. The man is a poet, who also writes prose in a most unusual and very poetic way. Thus, the tears of joy upon reading the poetry in the prose.
