Family confirm death of Ray Bradbury at age 91

LOS ANGELES--Ray Bradbury has died at 91, after a career of writing everything from science fiction and mystery to humor.

His daughter, Alexandra Bradbury, says her father died Tuesday night in California. She did not have more details.

Bradbury transformed his childhood dreams and Cold War fears into telepathic Martians, lovesick sea monsters and his vision of a high-tech, book-burning future in “Fahrenheit 451.”

He also wrote the 1956 film version of “Moby Dick” and wrote for “The Twilight Zone.”

Bradbury's series of stories in “The Martian Chronicles” was a Cold War morality tale in which events on another planet served as a commentary on life on this planet. It has been published in more than 30 languages.
