Author Ray Bradbury, the man behind the science-fiction staples The Martian Chronicles and Fahrenheit 451, passed yesterday at the age of 91 in California. His influence on and contribution to the sci-fi genre is immeasurable.
Though he'll forever be known for his literary accomplishments, Bradbury's work could be seen all over television. He wrote for both The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and several of his works have been adapted for small screen. He was also the host and heart of The Ray Bradbury Theater, an anthology series for which he wrote all 65 existing episodes, many of which were adaptations of his multitude of short stories.
Rest in peace, Mr. Bradbury. Science-fiction wouldn't be the same without you.
