Science-fiction author, Ray Bradbury passed away at home in California at the age of 91.
He did not see himself as a science fiction author despite his most famous work beingFahrenheit 451, where books are burned in a futuristic fascist state. He authored 27 novels and more than 600 short stories. As for where he got his ideas from? He was quoted in the New York Times in 2000 as saying,
Bradbury, “the auto was only 20 years old. Radio didn’t exist. TV didn’t exist. I was born at just the right time to write about all of these things.”
