Today is the birthday of Ray Bradbury. Bradbury is an American icon with more than 500 published works including short stories, novels, plays, screenplays, television scripts, and verse. Some classics include The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Although mostly described as Science Fiction Bradbury only claimed to write one Science Fiction book, preferring to describe his works as Fantasy as Science Fiction is a depiction of the real.

Some of my favorite Bradbury works include those for television. He wrote many Alfred Hitchcock Presents and possibly the best Twilight Zone episode the unbelievable I Sing the Body Electric.
