The famous modern American writer Ray Douglas Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012) produced works in the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Mystery. His famous novel is Farenheit 451 which was published in 1953. He is also well know for two collections of science fiction and horror stories; The Martian Chronicles (1950), and The Illustrated Man (1951).

Most of Bradbury's work is not in the public domain, but American Literature is happy to carry the few short stories that are.
