Great Regulars: [Ray Bradbury's] stories found their way into

radio and TV shows, including Suspense, The Twilight Zone, and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He hosted his own successful TV anthology, The Ray Bradbury Theater, airing from 1985-92, first on HBO and then on USA. (TV and film writer Damon Lindelof wrote: "I remember Ray's weekly trip up the elevator in The Ray Bradbury Theater and always wondered if he actually LIVED in that house filled with endless stacks of books.")

Bradbury stories were adapted into several movies, including It Came From Outer Space (1953), Fahrenheit 451 (1966), Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983), and Ray Bradbury's Chrysalis (2008). Besides 27 novels and collections, he also wrote memoirs, essays, plays, poems, and radio, TV, and film scripts.
