In 1976 Ray Bradbury wrote this beautiful letter to Robert Heinlein describing the influence Heinlein had on his life and his writing.
The letter reads:
"Your influence on us all, from 1939 on, cannot be measured. I can only say I remember , warmly, your many kindnesses to me when I was 19-20-21 years old. That young man basked in your light and will continue to be grateful for the help you offered when I was so poor & needful!
Yours in that memory." - Ray Bradbury, August 1976
