The world lost a brilliant visionary today. Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451 and many more futuristic/sci-fi stories, died at the age of 91. His career began in the mid 1940’s, writing short space stories for magazines across the country, and spanned for decades. In all, he wrote 11 novels, 54 short stories, 21 plays and 12 children’s books.
In December 1961, Boys’ Life was lucky enough have Bradbury write a fantastic short story called The Man. Click here to read the story.
The story was written eight years before America put a man on the moon, yet Bradbury’s imagination created spacemen flying from planet to planet. His stories are legendary and always ahead of their time. BL is honored and proud to have had his story grace our pages.
