This morning, President Obama paid tribute to the popular author known as a writer of science fiction:  “His gift for storytelling reshaped our culture and expanded our world.  But Ray also understood that our imaginations could be used as a tool for better understanding, a vehicle for change, and an expression of our most cherished values.”

Some of Bradbury’s best known works are:

Fahrenheit 451

The Martian Chronicles
