Ray Bradbury the writer who loved books above all, has died at the age of 91 (his mind was bright and as young as a teenager's one).

He decided to become a writer when he graduated, and contributed to different publications with short stories and articles. He usually spent  nights reading in libraries or working as a newspaper seller in the street.

The Martian Chronicles (1.950) and Fahrenheit 451  gave him a reputation as a sci-fi writer, although he always said that he was not a sci-fi but a fantasy writer.
