Ray Bradbury, the man who penned numerous fantasy and science fiction classics of American literature, like ‘Fahrenheit 451’ and ‘The Martian Chronicles,’ died June 5th, 2012, in Los Angeles at the age of 91.

His lyrical prose, combined with his provocative storylines, captivated the hearts and minds of his readers.
