Ray Bradbury grew up in a world filled with imagination and possibility. From childhood, he knew he wanted to be a writer, but he also wanted to do so much more. He watched amazing magicians perform tricks, read about the exciting adventures of future space travelers, and viewed the wonders of technology at the World’s Fair. As Bradbury grew up, he found himself embracing the mysteries of his childhood and transforming them in his writing. Just as many things interested him as a child, Ray Bradbury has found himself doing many fascinating things as an adult—as a writer and so much more.
