Ray Bradbury Dead: 'Fahrenheit 451' Author Dies At 91
Author Ray Bradbury died this morning in Los Angeles at the age of 91, reports io9. Bradbury's family and biographer Sam Weller confirmed the news.
The author of more than 50 books, Bradbury's work spanned genres of science fiction, horror and mystery. He was most widely known for his novels “The Martian Chronicles,” Dandelion Wine," “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and his classic dystopian novel "Fahrenheit 451," which has been a contested staple of school reading lists since its publication in 1953.
Many of Bradbury's works were adapted for television and film, including "Fahrenheit 451," which Francois Truffaut wrote and directed a film version of in 1966. Bradbury himself scripted several screenplays, including John Huston's 1956 version of "Moby Dick."
