    In Memoriam: Ray Bradbury (1920 – 2012)

    by Jasna - 0 Comment(s)

     

    Ray Bradbury was best known for Fahrenheit 451, a dystopyan novel about about a totalitarian, anti-intellectual society where banned books are burned by 'firemen.' The title refers to the temperature at which paper ignites.

    "A giant of American literature, who helped popularize science fiction", he published more than 500 works, including The Illustrated Man and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Bradbury once said he did not want to predict the future - but sometimes wanted to prevent it.

    He was 91 years old.
