Ray Bradbury

Prolific and award-winning sci-fi author Ray Bradbury passed away yesterday in Los Angeles at the age of 91 after a long illness. He is perhaps best known for his classic novels Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and Something Wicked This Way Comes, but Bradbury also wrote hundreds of short stories, some 47 other books, as well as screenplays, teleplays, poems, essays, plays, and, according to his website, an opera (yes, an opera!) during his illustrious 70-year career.

Bradbury inspired generations to think beyond what was put in front of us, to dream, and to create. While he eschewed such modern inventions as video games and ATMs, and purportedly hated television, he adapted 65 of his stories for a TV series called The Ray Bradbury Theater, which aired first on HBO from 1985-1986 and then on the USA network from 1988-1992.

No fan of eBooks either, Bradbury finally relented last year and allowed Fahrenheit 451 to be published in ebook format, which we wrote about here.

Bradbury, who is now 89-years-old, embarks on this new journey after an agreement was reached with the newbie movie company White Oak Films. If a network decides that they want to be a part of the project, negotiations will begin and directors will be scouted. Supposedly, the directors brought onto the project will get to choose their favorite Bradbury story to adapt into one of the segments.
