Highly esteemed science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury, passed away on Tuesday, June 5, 2012.

He was 91 years old.

His most celebrated works were “The Illustrated Man”, “Fahrenheit 451″ and “Something Wicked This Way Comes”.

I first read Bradbury because Fahrenheit 451 was a requisite in high school. This was one of the first books that I read where I remember thinking, “Why are we reading this? This is really good.” I think I even started using the school library, but don’t tell anyone. I will loose my street cred.

As if his literary career was not impressive enough, I was blown away when I looked into his film and television career. Check out his IMDb page. Amazing. When did he sleep? How did he make it to 91 under such a workload?

Looking at his over his life it’s easy to see how he lived such a remarkable life.

Bradbury wrote every day. »
