Science Fiction Legend Ray Bradbury Dies at 91

Ray Bradbury, author of sci-fi classics such as Fahrenheit 451, The Illustrated Man, and The Martian Chronicles, died yesterday at the age of 91 after a long illness. Bradbury’s work has been adapted into films and TV shows many times over, including episodes of The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He was a great proponent of books and libraries, believing that they allowed those who could not afford formal schooling a chance to educate themselves. His writing heavily influenced the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and he will be greatly missed.

“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”  ~Ray Bradbury
