Happy Birthday Ray Bradbury

It's the birthday of Ray Bradbury, (books by this author) born in Waukegan, Illinois (1920). He has more than 500 published works — novels, stories, plays, and poems — and he is best known for Fahrenheit 451 (1953), about a "fireman" book burner in a world where books and printed material are illegal.
