Ray Bradbury,  considered one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time, died earlier today. Bradbury authored "The Martian Chronicles", "Farhrenheit 451", and "The Illustrated Man"  to name a few.

Bradbury once told an audience it cost him only $9.80 to write Fahrenheight 451. When asked how he got started writing he explained, "I simply got out of bed each morning and put down any series of words that happened to be in my head." Bradbury was 91.
