Meet the Author

Ray Bradbury
Ray Bradbury nació el 22 de agosto de 1920 en Waukegan, Illinois.  Durante la Gran Depresión se trasladó con su familia a Los Ángeles, donde se graduó en 1938 del Los Angeles High School.  Su educación académica acabó ahí, pero continuó formándose por cuenta propia hasta que en 1943 se convirtrió en escritor profesional.  Sus obras más conocidas son Crónicas marcianas, El hombre ilustrado y Fahrenheit 451.  Brabdury no sólo es novelista, también ha escrito innumerables guiones de televisión, ensayos y poemas.  Su preocupación como escritor no sólo se centra en cuestionar el modo de vida actual, también se adentra en el reino de lo fantástico y maravilloso, con un estilo poético y, a veces, provocativo.  En su niñez, Bradbury fue muy propenso a las pesadillas y horribles fantasías que acabó por plasmar en sus relatos muchos años después.

Biography

Ray Bradbury is one of those rare individuals whose writing has changed the way people think. His more than 500 published works -- short stories, novels, plays, screenplays, television scripts, and verse -- exemplify the American imagination at its most creative.

Once read, his words are never forgotten. His best-known and most beloved books -- The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, Fahrenheit 451, and Something Wicked This Way Comes -- are masterworks that readers carry with them over a lifetime. His timeless, constant appeal to audiences young and old has proven him to be one of the truly classic authors of the 20th Century -- and the 21st.

Ray Bradbury's work has been included in several Best American Short Story collections. He has been awarded the O. Henry Memorial Award, the Benjamin Franklin Award, the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Grand Master Award from the Science Fiction Writers of America, and the PEN Center USA West Lifetime Achievement Award, among others. In recognition of his stature in the world of literature and the impact he has had on so many for so many years, Bradbury was awarded the National Book Foundation's 2000 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters and the National Medal of Arts in 2004.

On the occasion of his 80th birthday in August 2000, Bradbury said, "The great fun in my life has been getting up every morning and rushing to the typewriter because some new idea has hit me. The feeling I have every day is very much the same as it was when I was twelve. In any event, here I am, eighty years old, feeling no different, full of a great sense of joy, and glad for the long life that has been allowed me. I have good plans for the next ten or twenty years, and I hope you'll come along."

Good To Know

In our exclusive interview with Bradbury, he shared some fascinating facts with us:

"I spent three years standing on a street corner, selling newspapers, making ten dollars a week. I did that job every day for three hours and the rest of the time I wrote because I was in love with writing. The answer to all writing, to any career for that matter, is love."

"I have been inspired by libraries and the magic they contain and the people that they represent."

"I hate all politics. I don't like either political party. One should not belong to them -- one should be an individual, standing in the middle. Anyone that belongs to a party stops thinking."

    Spanish

    I was excited to read this book because I read it few years ago but did not really understand it at that time, so when I saw it available on my Nook I purchased it. I purchased it without getting the sample, so when I went to read it, it was in Spanish. Very disappointed that B&N did not give a warning. For me, who can not read Spanish, this was a waste of money. DO NIT BUT IF YOU CAN'T READ SPANISH.

    Spanish

    I agree there is no way to know this is in spanish unless you read the reviews. Most people like myself trust B & N to tell you the correct language. I think refunds should be given to people who thought this copy was in english or they should be given the english version for free.

    I can't believe the negative reviews on this. If you read the overview, it's clearly written in Spanish. The cover of the book has Spanish on it. Anyway. This is my favorite novel of all time, and I cannot wait to read it in Spanish to help solidify the grammar/etc. that I've been learning in my Spanish classes.

    Bradbury Captures the Fears of our Society

    Bradbury's fiction is more real than a surface read allows. Full of imagery, 'what if's', and spectacular thought provoking circumstances, Bradbury's Farenheit 451 is sure to leave you breathless and thinking! A must read for future English teachers in the 21st century, this book will show the power of the written word!
