Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury (born August 22, 1920) is a science fiction and fantasy writer.

He was born in Waukegan, Illinois, eventually moving to Los Angeles in 1934. His first book, the collection Dark Carnival[?], was published in 1947.

Notable works include:

He has also worked on screenplays, including Moby Dick (1956) and King of Kings[?] (1961), both directed by John Huston. Bradbury wrote the voice-over narration for King of Kings[?], notably Christ's final monologue, but did not receive screen credit.

His short story "The Foghorn", in which a sea monster mistakes a foghorn for the mating cry of a female, was adapted into the film The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms[?] in 1953. In addition to other film adaptations of his work, many of his stories were adapted by EC Comics in the 1950s.
