Dátum narodenia: 22. august 1920
Dátum úmrtia: 5. jún 2012

Raymond Douglas Bradbury bol americký spisovateľ sci-fi a fantasy.

V roku 1939 vydal štyri čísla vlastného fanzinu Futuria Fantazia. Prvá publikovaná poviedka Hollerbochen's Dilemna mu vyšla v amatérskom fanzine Imagination! v roku 1938. Jeho prvá predaná poviedka bola Pendulum, ktorú napísal spolu s Henry Hassom. Najčastejšie spolupracoval s fanzinom Weird tales, kde v rokoch 1941 – 1948 publikoval celkom 25 poviedok.

Jeho najslávnejším dielom sú The Martian Chronicles . Kniha rozoberá vzájomné postavenie – ignoranciu ľudí a mimozemšťanov, ale hlavne o neschopnosť ľudí učiť sa z vlastných chýb.

Nemenej slávnym dielom je 451 stupňov Fahrenheita – pohľad na spoločnosť, kde zločinom je vlastniť a čítať knihy. Román sfilmoval francúzsky režisér Francois Truffaut.

„You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.“

—  Ray Bradbury, kniha Ray Bradbury

As quoted in "Bradbury Still Believes in Heat of ‘Fahrenheit 451’" http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19930312&slug=1689996, interview by Misha Berson, in ', credited to "Ray Bradbury, quoted by Misha Berson in Seattle Times", in "Quotable Quotes", The Reader's Digest, Vol. 144, No. 861, January 1994, p. 25 http://books.google.com/books?output=html&id=ZqqUAAAAIAAJ&q=%22people+to+stop+reading%22#search_anchor), or an indirect reference to the re-quoting in Reader's Digest (such as: The Times Book of Quotations (Philip Howard, ed.), 2000, Times Books and HarperCollins, p. 93
Variant: We're not teaching kids to read and write and think. … There's no reason to burn books if you don't read them.
As quoted in "At 80, Ray Bradbury Still Fighting the Future He Foresaw" http://www.raybradbury.com/articles_peoria.html, interview by Roger Moore, in The Peoria Journal Star (August 2000)
Kontext: The problem in our country isn't with books being banned, but with people no longer reading. Look at the magazines, the newspapers around us – it's all junk, all trash, tidbits of news. The average TV ad has 120 images a minute. Everything just falls off your mind. … You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.

„We never sit anything out. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.“

—  Ray Bradbury, kniha Zen in the Art of Writing

Varianta: We never sit anything out. We are cups, quietly and constantly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.

Kontext: From now on I hope always to educate myself as best I can. But lacking this, in future I will relaxedly turn back to my secret mind to see what it has observed when I thought I was sitting this one out. We never sit anything out. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.

„There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches.“

—  Ray Bradbury, kniha Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 (1953), Coda (1979)
Kontext: There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches. Every minority, be it Baptist/Unitarian, Irish/Italian/Octogenarian/Zen Buddhist, Zionist/Seventh-day Adventist, Women's Lib/Republican, Mattachine/FourSquareGospel feels it has the will, the right, the duty to douse the kerosene, light the fuse. Every dimwit editor who sees himself as the source of all dreary blanc-mange plain porridge unleavened literature, licks his guillotine and eyes the neck of any author who dares to speak above a whisper or write above a nursery rhyme.
