The Hobbit

What is this creature that last week took the life of sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury?

"This thing all things devours:

Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;

Gnaws iron, bites steel;

Grinds hard stones to meal;

Slays king, ruins town,

And beats high mountain down."

He was 91 so I don't know what you mean by" creature". Can you clue me in a little more?

Time. Time devours all things; it eats at iron, works away at stones turning them into grains of dirt/sand. Time, thus old age is what killed Ray Bradbury.
