Ray Bradbury

Writer Ray Bradbury died Tuesday night  at the age of 91 in his Los Angeles home. Bradbury is perhaps best known for his book Fahrenheit 451, a novel depicting a dystopian future where books are outlawed. Bradbury’s works ranged from comedy to drama. He covered everything, and cannot be pigeonholed as merely a Sci-Fi writer. In 2009 Bradbury said ”What I have always been is a hybrid author.”

In television he wrote scripts for The Twilight Zone and The Ray Bradbury Theatre. He was quite sucessful in writing for film receiving an Academy Award nomination for an animated film, Icarus Montgolfier Wright, and an Emmy for his teleplay of The Halloween Tree.

In 2000 he was awarded an honorary National Book Award medal for lifetime achievement. He also has received the honor of a Pulitzer Prize citation in 2007 for “for his distinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy.”
