Ray Bradbury

Bradbury writes unlike other science fiction writers in that he steers away from writing about technology.

Once, after Bradbury had made a strong name for himself, he, on the day before his wedding day, burned a million of his words that he felt were not good enough.

Bradbury is well-known for his volume of short stories, "The Martian Chronicles," and also for "Fahrenheit 451," which projects the future's government as banning and burning books. Bradbury is considered America's best science fiction writer.
