Iconic author Ray Bradbury passes away at the age of 91

Ray Bradbury was such an accomplished writer and an iconic man in general. Today we here at TrulyDisturbing.com extend out heartfelt sorrow in the loss of one of America’s best genre writers. Read on for the details.

 

Bradbury was born in 1920 in Illinois.  He went on to pen many classics including Something Wicked This Way Comes, Farenheit 451, The Halloween TreeThe Martian Chronicles and countless short story collections.  His tale, The Fog Horn, was adapted into the creature feature The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms.  He also inspired The Ray Bradbury Theater, a series based on his works which ran on HBO for two seasons.

io9 received the following statement from Bradbury’s grandson, Danny Karapetian:

“If I had to make any statement, it would be how much I love and miss him, and I look forward to hearing everyone’s memories about him. He influenced so many artists, writers, teachers, scientists, and it’s always really touching and comforting to hear their stories. Your stories. His legacy lives on in his monumental body of books, film, television and theater, but more importantly, in the minds and hearts of anyone who read him, because to read him was to know him. He was the biggest kid I know.”

We here at TD would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to Mr. Bradbury’s family. Thank you sir for taking our imaginations on such great journeys.
