Today in Sci-Fi History: June 5

June 5, 2012, Ray Bradbury died at the age of 91 in his home in Los Angeles.

Bradbury was a pioneer in Science Fiction. He had envisioned much many products of our time in his writing, such as the idea of banking ATMs and earbuds and Bluetooth headsets from Fahrenheit 451, and the concepts of artificial intelligence within I Sing the Body Electric.

He is best known for his following works:

The Martian Chronicles 1949

The Illustrated Man 1951

 Fahrenheit 451 1953

 

The day before he died, after years of battling illness, he wrote a reflective article looking back on his life.
