Ray Bradbury, best known for his modern masterpiece "Fahrenheit 451," was a prolific author whose literary legacy comprises a library of works. His creative genius extended beyond books, earning him an Oscar nomination for the animated film "Icarus Montgolfier Wright" and an Emmy for the teleplay of "The Halloween Tree." Bradbury played a significant role in television through "Ray Bradbury Theater," where he adapted over 60 of his short stories for the program.

His influence reached diverse realms, including collaboration with Disney World on the Spaceship Earth Display and contributing to "Orbiton" at Euro-Disney in France. Bradbury's passion for writing traced back to two pivotal events in 1932: watching the silent film adaptation of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and a mesmerizing stage performance by "Mr. Electrico" at the Dill Brothers Combined Shows carnival. Reflecting on the latter experience, Bradbury mused about running towards life and away from death.

He was a voracious reader, enjoying everything from Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells, Edgar Allen Poe, as well as Walt Whitman. Ray Bradbury's title "I Sing the Body Electric" comes from Whitman's "Leaves of Grass."
