Ray Bradbury, author of 'Fahrenheit 451', dies at 91

Quote:
Science fiction literature pioneer Ray Bradbury, whose works included "Fahrenheit 451" and "The Martian Chronicles," died overnight. He was 91.

Bradbury wrote one of the quintessential dystopian novels with "Fahrenheit 451," practically required reading for many high-school students. He also authored the script for the 1956 film "Moby Dick" and wrote scripts for the classic TV show "The Twilight Zone," with many of his stories forming the basis for television shows, radio, and films.

His impact on the science fiction world was evident in the Ray Bradbury Award, which is presented by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and named in Bradbury's honor.

While his novels offered many technological predictions, he personally expressed skepticism about the value of technology to society, and whether the Internet and cell phones brought people together or kept them apart.
