From the unsettling (yet tremendously effective) story telling of “Something Wicked This Way Comes” to the prescient work of “The Martian Chronicles”, Ray Bradbury has given readers much to think about for the past fifty years or so. This website, developed by Harper Collins (Bradbury’s publisher), contains a great deal of informative and entertaining material about Bradbury, and it certainly merits several visits. From the site’s visually appealing homepage, visitors should start with the “About Ray Bradbury” area. Here, visitors can read a brief biography of the author, which is complemented by a list of his literary awards. Perhaps the most interesting part of the site is titled “At Home With Ray”. This section contains short video clips of Bradbury where he discusses the “world of metaphors”, his work “Fahrenheit 451”, as well as censorship.
