Ray Bradbury, the writer whose expansive flights of fantasy and vividly rendered space-scapes have provided the world with one of the most enduring speculative blueprints for the future, has died. He was 91.
Bradbury's daughter confirmed his death to the Associated Press on Wednesday morning. She said her father died Tuesday night in Southern California.
Author of more than 27 novels and story collections most famously The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, Dandelion Wine and Something Wicked This Way Comes and more than 600 short stories, Bradbury has frequently been credited with elevating the often maligned reputation of science fiction. Some say he singlehandedly helped to move the genre into the realm of literature.

I think our country is in need of a revolution. There is too much government today. We've got to remember the government should be by the people, of the people and for the people. -Ray Bradbury
A sad day for Sci-Fi fans. One of the greats has left us. RIP Ray.
One of my absolute all-time favs.
Bradbury largely educated himself at the local library. What a guy!
How sad. RIP.
Ray Bradbury's passing marks the end of an era.
Bradbury, Asimov, and Heinlein were my favorite writers, as I was growing up.
I heard Mr. Bradbury do interviews on Coast to Coast AM a few times. You could from his voice tell he was entering his 9th decade, but he was still all there.
I remember that Bradburry was pissed that Moore used Fahrenheit 911 that as the title for his movie. Here's a pic of the literary genius he will be sorely missed.
That fat pig Michael Moore can’t hold a candle to anything Mr. Bradbury wrote.
Good writer and was on our side. I remember reading several of his novels in school.
