Ray Bradbury, Author Of ‘Fahrenheit 451′ And Other Classics, Dies

Author Ray Bradbury has died, his daughter tells The Associated Press. The wire service says Bradbury passed away Tuesday night.

The website io9.com, which appears to have broken the news, says the 91-year-old author “The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, Something Wicked this Way Comes, and many more literary classics” died in Los Angeles, possibly early this morning. “We’ve got confirmation from the family as well as his biographer, Sam Weller,” io9 adds.

We’ll have more shortly.
