Ray Bradbury’s Wikipedia entry is here
Among other comments, Wikipedia quotes one from the New York Times which said that he was “the writer most responsible for bringing modern science fiction into the literary mainstream.”
That’s quite an accolade.
Comments on Ray Bradbury
I can never forget reading Fahrenheit 451. The story shows us a dystopian world in which firemen don’t put fires out, they start them. And what do they burn?
Dangerous, potentially inflammatory, thought-provoking books. That quirky title stems from the fact that paper ignites at 451 degrees F. For book-lovers and book-readers everywhere, it’s a chilling and scary thought, but far from implausible.
