Ray Bradbury passes away at the age of 91

Grand Master of SF Ray Bradbury passed away this morning in Los Angeles, at the age of 91. While Bradbury was best known for the frequently challenged and/or banned novel Fahrenheit 451, he was also known for being a prolific short story writer, with his story The Veldt being reading among many high school textbooks. In addition to Fahrenheit 451, the short story collection The Illustrated Man was adapted to an anthology film, and The Martian Chronicles was adapted to a television miniseries. Several stories where adapted to episodes of the radio series X Minus One and Dimension X, both of which can be found at Archive.org.

The staff of Bureau42.com would like to offer their condolences to Bradbury’s family. He will be missed.

  1. I can’t say it’s a surprise, but it rather mars the cheer of the day. Bradbury did so much in SF early on, and he did it well. Few can touch him for the sheer output of quality writing.

  2. Way back during the mid-1960s, a little boy in a sleepy Southern town stumbled across a book in the kid’s library called R Is For Rocket.

    My life was forever altered.

    Thanks, Ray Bradbury.
