1920 -

Ray Bradbury is an American writer widely considered to be one of the most popular 20th century writers of speculative fiction. Although often described as a science fiction writer, Bradbury does not consider himself in this way and points out that Fahrenheit 451 is his only true science fiction effort. He is best known for the fantasy collection The Martian Chronicles (1950), the science fiction classic Fahrenheit 451 (1953), and the horror fantasy Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962), as well as numerous short story collections.
