Perhaps one of the most important Fantasy and Science Fiction writers of the 20th Century,1 Ray Bradbury thrilled and challenged readers throughout his 70 year career. His seminal dystopian work, Fahrenheit 451, is a staple in American high schools. Bradbury called on a wealth of influences ranging from Aldous Huxley to William Shakespeare to create numerous other works like Something Wicked This Way Comes and The Martian Chronicles. His works have been adapted into films, television shows and even comic books and was a mainstay in the Sci-Fi convention circuit for decades. At the age of 91, Bradbury died in his home in Los Angeles.
