Since what Bradbury did best was write short stories--for years he followed a regimen of writing at least one story a week--perhaps the most fitting tribute to his life and work is the new anthology Shadow Show that is coming out in July. This collection of stories celebrates the work of Ray Bradbury, and includes stories by Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link, Margaret Atwood, and Joe Hill, among others. I heard Kelly Link read her story at ICFA and it was fantastic--I can think of no better way to celebrate the life of one of science fiction's most influential authors.
