A hero of his was Italian director Federico Fellini. When they first met, as Bradbury claims, Fellini ran up to him, embraced him and said, "My twin! My twin!".

National Public Radio's "Bradbury 13" (1984) was a 13-episode program based on many of his stories.

His other novels and stories also have been adapted to films and television, as well as for radio, theatre and comic books. Bradbury had written episodes for Alfred Hitchcock's TV series, as well as for many other TV productions. His total literary output is close to 600 short stories, more than 30 books and numerous poems and plays. He was writing daily.

His first book - "Dark Carnival" - was a collection of stories published in 1947.


In 1941 he became a paid writer when the pulp magazine Science Stories published his short story, titled "Pendulum", and he was a full-time writer by the end of 1942.


He graduated from high school in 1938 and had no more formal education. Instead, he learned from reading works of such writers as Lev Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoevsky, among others.

From 1938-42 he was selling newspapers on the streets of Los Angeles, spending days in the local library and nights at the typewriter. At that time he published his stories in fanzines.


In 1934 his family settled in Los Angeles, California. There young Bradbury often roller-skated through Hollywood, trying to spot celebrities. He attended Los Angeles High School, where he was involved in the drama club and planned to become an actor.


While being best known for his science-fiction novels and films, he was a big fan of comedians Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, attending Sons of the Desert\--the team's fan club--meetings when he could, and he wrote a number of short stories about them, including "The Laurel and Hardy Love Affair", "The Laurel and Hardy Alpha Centauri Farewell Tour" and "Another Fine Mess", which was set on the steps on which they shot their famous "The Music Box" (1932) short.


That same year he married Marguerite McClure (1922-2003), whom he met at a book store a year earlier. Maggie, as she was affectionately called, was the only woman Bradbyru ever dated. They had four daughters and, eventually, eight grandchildren.
