Ray Bradbury

by

Ten-year-old Ray Bradbury was impatient. He had just read the last installment of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Mars series. Not wanting to wait for the next book, he wrote his own. Through high school, he submitted stories for publication unsuccessfully, but in his 20s, he began selling stories to the most popular magazines of the era. Today, Ray Bradbury is among the most acclaimed and popular writers of speculative fiction, best known for his novel Fahrenheit 451 and for the science fiction stories collected in The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man. In Ray Bradbury, read how a man who never drove a car and did not fly in an airplane until his 60s wrote the kind of stories that changed the way people view the future.
