Ray Bradbury

Best known for Fahrenheit 451 (a classic novel first published as a series in Playboy), Ray Bradbury also wrote iconic science fiction and horror stories including* The Martian Chronicles* and The Illustrated Man. Born on 22 August, 1920 in Illinois, Ray grew up in Hollywood and published his first story in 1918. Upon his death in 2012, the New York Times claimed ‘Ray Bradbury was the writer most responsible for bringing modern science fiction into the literary mainstream’.
Ray believed he was a fantasy writer and that Fahrenheit 451 was the only science fiction book he wrote. A keen believer in writing every day, over the course of his life, he published 30 books and over 600 short stories and poems, essays, screenplays and stage plays. A skeptic of the internet, he never learned to drive and always used public transport. A lover of cats, NASA named the Curiosity Rover’s landing space on Mars after him.
