Daughter says author Ray Bradbury has died in California
Updated


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

Ray Bradbury, who wrote everything from science fiction to mystery and humor, died at 91. He's pictured at a 1997 book signing.

Ray Bradbury, who wrote everything from science fiction to mystery and humor, died at 91. He's pictured at a 1997 book signing.

Reached at Bradbury's home, his daughter, Alexandra Bradbury, says her father died Tuesday night in Southern California. She did not have additional 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 scripted 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.

He had some great work. The Illustrated Man is one of my favorites.

He was not just a prolific author but a man with an insightful intellect able to transform a vision into a story. Spent many hours reading his books during my teen years.

Kind of ironic for a man that failed the vision exam for military service during WWII. Probably why he never got a drivers license.

RIP sir.
