Author Ray Bradbury Dies at 91

Famous sci-fi author Ray Bradbury died Tuesday at the age of 91. A spokesperson from his publisher HarperCollins said Wednesday, “Mr. Bradbury died peacefully, last night, in Los Angeles, after a long illness.”

Known for the classic novel, Farenheit:451, the author who helped popularize the genre stayed very active into his 90s despite having suffered a stroke in recent years. According to CTV, Bradbury wrote every day in his Cheviot Hills home’s basement office and made appearances at bookstores and public library fundraisers.

Bradbury published more than 500 works, including Something Wicked This Way Comes, The Illustrated Man and The Martian Chronicles.
