Recently, I saw Mr. Bradbury's name pop up on one of the other threads and it activated an old old annoyance in me. Many many many moons ago when I was new to sf I would see books by Bradbury with the blurb on the covers reading: Ray Bradbury World's Greatest Science Fiction Author. This would irk me because in the books I read of his I don't recall anything pertaining to space ships, ray guns, dimensions, black holes, faster than light space travel, or anything concerning even every day science. I'm sure that this wasn't a brag of his, however I felt that this was very dishonest and discourteous to writers like Asimov and Heinlein who did expound ideas of science.
Did I miss something in my youthful ignorance? Did Mr. Bradbury really deserved this accolade?
