Meet the Author

The author of more than thirty books, Ray Bradbury is one of the most celebrated fiction writers of our time. Among his best-known works are "Fahrenheit 451", "The Martian Chronicles", "The Illustrated Man", "Dandelion Wine", and "Something Wicked This Way Comes". In 2000, Mr. Bradbury was honored by the National Book Foundation with a medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He is the winner of the 2004 National Medal of Arts and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation. In 2007, he was awarded a medal naming him a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters, France's highest cultural award. His most recent books include "Now and Forever", "Farewell Summer", and "From the Dust Returned". Mr. Bradbury lives in Los Angeles.

Kurt Vonnegut was a master of contemporary American Literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in "The Siren's of Titan" in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" with "Cat's Cradle" in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers."

Harlan Ellison is one of the world's most respected writers of fiction. He has won more awards for his fiction than any living writer.
