Ray Bradbury Net Worth $30 Million

To begin with, the boy grew up in the time of Great Depression. After the family finally settled in Los Angeles, Bradbury attended Los Angeles High School, and subsequently graduated from UCLA in 1938, after which for a while sold newspapers for living.

From an early age, Ray had always been an avid reader, writer, and cartoonist for his own amusement. He was first published in the late ‘30s – his eyesight was so poor he was rejected for military servicm so wrote instead, notably for “Fanzines” and “Script” during the ‘40s. His reputation as a writer was established with the publication of “The Martian Chronicles” (1950), then “Fahrenheit 451” (1953) was released, which many considered Bradbury’s masterpiece. Other works of the writer include “The October Country” (1955), “Something Wicked This Way Comes” (1962), “I Sing the Body Electric!” (1969), among many others. Bradbury’s works are usually short stories, and their centre is not action, but dialogue, monologue, reflection. The writer combines fantasy with detection and melodrama. His works do not have comprehensive descriptions of technological details, but much attention is paid to the place of action, the appearance of heroes, names, dates and figures. Thoughts are thoroughly built, but they are not the main part of his works. Bradbury’s emotions, atmosphere, and feeling are more important than action. In his works, Bradbury laughs from people without imagination. Evil and violence in his work are unrealistic, and it’s best to ignore them without paying attention to them. According to Bradbury himself, he wrote over 400 stories throughout his life. Some of them later became larger works, others belong to specific cycles. His short stories appeared in over a thousand of anthologies of recommended reading in schools.

Ray Bradbury’s work has been inducted into collections of four Best American Short Story. He was rewarded among others with the O. Henry Memorial Award, the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Grand Master Award from the Science Fiction Writers of America, Award PEN centre USA West Lifetime Achievement. The stand-out was his Pulitzer Prize in 2007.

Bradbury never confined his vision to pure literature. For his animated film “Icarus Montgolfier Wright” he was nominated for an Academy Award, and won an Emmy Award for his screenplay for television “The Halloween Tree”. He adapted 65 of his stories for Ray Bradbury Theatre of television.

Additionally, Bradbury was the creative consultant on the US Pavilion at the New York World’s Fair of 1964. In 1982, he created the interior metaphors sample Spaceship Earth at Epcot Centre, Disney World and later contributed to the conception of spatial route in Disneyland Paris, France.

The Ray Bradbury Award is presented by the group of sci-fi writers Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America to highlight the excellence of a dramatic work presented in cinema, television, internet, radio or at the theatre.

Finally, in the personal life of Ray Bradbury, he was married to Maggie Bradbury from 1947, and they lived in Los Angeles until Maggie died in 2003; they had four daughters. Ray died on the 5th June 2012 in Los Angeles, California – at his request, his tombstone at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery bears the epitaph: Author of Fahrenheit 451.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Ray Bradbury passed away on June 5, 2012, two months away from what would have been his 92nd birthday on August 22.
2In the 1920s, his mother took him with her when she went to see silent films. He first saw Lon Chaney's The Phantom of the Opera (1925) when he was only three years old, and it had a lifelong impact on him.
3After finishing high school, he didn't have the money to go to college so instead went down to his local library to read three nights a week. In 10 years' time, he read all the books in the library and considered that to be his higher education instead.
4Didn't eat a regular meal with his family until he was 6 years old. His father got tired of him drinking a baby bottle every day and smashed it in the sink.
5When he was a baby, his mother tied him to an apple tree so she could keep an eye on him while she hung up the laundry.
6The inspiration for his short story "The Pedestrian" came after he and a friend were out walking one night, and a policemen stopped them and questioned them because he deemed their behavior suspicious. The policemen let them go with a warning not to do it again.
7Following his death, he was interred at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.
8Had a nod in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) with the ship named the USS Bradbury.
9He was awarded Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by French culture minister Frederic Mitterrand in 2007.
10He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6644 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on April 1, 2002.
11He once visited the set of Star Trek (1966) as a potential writer for the series. Crew members remembered him as being being very polite and courteous, thinking he was already making himself at home. It later turned out that he never had any intention to join the writing team, but wanted to come anyway. He remained friends with series creator Gene Roddenberry until Gene's death.
12Ray Bradbury was well-known and much-beloved in science fiction and fantasy circles for writing stories of nostalgia, much like Jack Finney and, to a lesser extent, Alfred Bester.
13Lifelong friends of Ray Harryhausen and Forrest J. Ackerman, ever since they were teenagers and members of the same Los Angeles Science Fiction Club.
14In 1950, he discovered that comic book publisher William M. Gaines (later famous for producing Mad magazine) had published several of his stories without his permission. Bradbury wrote Gaines a letter praising the artwork and treatment of his story, and politely asked for his royalty payment. He got it.
15As a young man, he once sold newspapers on a Los Angeles street corner.
16Despite the anti-censorship message of "Farenheit 451", Bradbury has continually had to fight his publisher's censors who want to tamper or alter the language and tone of the book. He says that the irony is obviously lost on them.
17Had never enjoyed driving, and had always used either public transportation, or a bicycle.
18When his wife started having children, he stated, "It literally scared the hell out of me.".
19Paid tribute to in the music video "F**k Me, Ray Bradbury" by Rachel Bloom. Although he did not publicly comment on it, he was confirmed to have seen the video, and he met with Bloom.
20A hero of his was the Italian director Federico Fellini. When they first met, as Bradbury claims, Fellini ran up to Bradbury, embraced him, and said "My twin! My twin!". They became great friends but never collaborated on any projects. Bradbury claimed that his lifelong love of Halloween was soured after Fellini died on October 31, 1993.
21In Chaplin's Goliath (1996), a documentary about silent film star Eric Campbell, the Rosedale Cemetary spokeswoman mistakenly claims Ray Bradbury is interred there.
22He and famed animator Chuck Jones were close friends for more than 50 years.
23Inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 1999.
24As a young boy, a friend once ridiculed his collection of science fiction and comic books, and heckled him into throwing them away. A day later, Bradbury was heartbroken, feeling that he had trashed his best friends. He immediately rebuilt his collection.
25As a bedtime story for each of his daughters, he read (in nightly installments) "Hound of the Baskervilles" by Arthur Conan Doyle.
26He voiced his displeasure at documentary filmmaker Michael Moore for appropriating the title of his book "Fahrenheit 451" for the documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004). However, Bradbury himself is the author of "Beyond 1984" (title appropriated from George Orwell's "1984") and "Another Tale of Two Cities" (title appropriated from Charles Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities"). While book and story titles cannot be copyrighted, both Orwell and Dickens were long dead when Bradbury borrowed their titles, Bradbury was alive when Michael Moore did so and Moore never bothered to ask Bradbury's permission.
27Had a series of short stories which his publisher said would never sell, so he linked the stories together, while living at a local YMCA, and created the novel "The Martian Chronicles". He was paid just $500 for the story.
28He was the great-great-great grandson of Mary Bradbury, a woman who was tried in the Salem Witch Trials in 1692, but saved herself from being hanged for witchcraft.
29His original title for one of his novels was "The Fireman". He called his local fire department and asked them what the temperature at which paper burns at - and was told "451 Fahrenheit". He reversed it to make it the title of his novel "Fahrenheit 451".
30There is a noted irony in the names of two characters in his novel "Fahrenheit 451": "Montag" is also the name of a paper mill and "Faber" is a manufacturer of pencils. Ray Bradbury insists that this was unintentional.
31Recipient of a 2004 National Medal of Arts, awarded by the National Endowment for the Arts (USA).
32National Public Radio's "Bradbury 13" (1984) was a 13-episode program based on many of his stories.
33Though considered by many to be the greatest science-fiction writer of the of the 20th century, he suffers from a fear of flying and driving. He has never learned to drive, and did not fly in an airplane until October 1982.
34He wrote the original manuscript of "Fahrenheit 451" on a rented typewriter in a public library, from handwritten notes and outlines. It first appeared in print in a shortened form (of about 25,000 words) in Galaxy magazine and later in its present length but in serial format in the just starting out Playboy magazine.
35Son of Leonard Spaulding Bradbury, linesman with the Waukegan Bureau of Power and Light, and of Esther Marie Moberg.
36Father of four daughters: Susan, Ramona, Bettina and Alexandra.

1People say to me, "What is Hollywood's responsibility?". The responsibility of Hollywood is to prove that we are human. Not with happy endings, but with moments we take away and remember.
2If you were to ask me what I think of Hollywood today, it's more of the same, except worse. I grew up in Hollywood, I roller skated around here, and got autographs and photographs when I was 14 years old, so I know the community very well. But things have gotten worse, because we're making more money today out of doing lousy films. A good example is The Mummy, it came out when I was 12 years old, I loved the film with Boris Karloff, a very minor film with a minor amount of money, probably cost $100,000 or less. But it's a beautiful film, with a nice script. They made a new version here at Universal 5 years ago, it was a terrible film. They thought "If one mummy's scares you, 2 dozen mummies, a chorus line of mummies has got to be very scary." So the film came out, dreadful film, and it made $500 million. So they were encouraged into believing that doing lousy films is profitable; but even worse than the old days. So they did another film called The Mummy Returns, and it was even worse than the first one, and it made a billion dollars, so they were encouraged in going ahead to making lousy films instead of quality films. So things haven't changed, they've just gotten bigger, and lousier.
3After 9/11, Hollywood promised they were going to make more family films, less violence, and things of that sort, well it's never happened. Films have gotten more violent. The Bond films are unwatchable now; I was around 45 years ago when the Bond films began. They were nice quiet little films, every 5 minutes a little bit of action perhaps. But now there's an explosion every 5 minutes and they set off 10 billion gallons of gasoline, and there are more macho selves being made today, in which people settle things with guns, and with machine guns. So things have not improved. They've gotten worse.
4Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.
5I don't try to describe the future. I try to prevent it.
6I don't believe in being serious about anything. I think life is too serious to be taken seriously.
7I have fun with ideas. I play with them. I'm not a serious person and I don't like serious people. I don't see myself as a philosopher. That's awfully boring.
8[on Lon Chaney] He was someone who acted out our psyches. He got into the shadows inside our bodies. The history of Lon Chaney is the history of unrequited love.
9[on Ray Harryhausen] Long after we are all gone, his shadow shows will live through a thousand years in this world.
10I don't need to be vindicated, and I don't want attention. I never question. I never ask anyone else's opinion. They don't count.
11I'm the most cinematic writer around -- all of my short stories can be shot right off the page.
12Once you hear a metaphor of mine, you won't forget it. A dinosaur falling in love with a lighthouse, boom, there's your metaphor. Once you hear that, you say, "Gee, I gotta read that, I wonder what happened?" All the great stories of the world are metaphorical, so they can be remembered. That's why so much stage writing and film writing today can't be remembered, because there are no metaphors. You can't tell the story when you come out of the theater. That's what's wrong with most modern fiction. Realism is what we already know. My job is to interpret realism, to turn it into metaphors, so you can swallow it.
13There are two races of people - men and women - no matter what what women's libbers would have you pretend. Men are born with no purpose in the universe except to procreate. There is lots of time to kill beyond that.
14Sense of humor is everything. You can do anything in this world if you have a sense of humor. Many directors, producers, people haven't learned that -- that if you just salt people down a little and put a bit of butter on them and make them happy, then we can all work together.
15I am one of those fortunate people who were born to be joyful writers discovered the fact early on.
16[on writing "Fahrenheit 451"] I wasn't trying to predict the future. I was trying to prevent it.
17Touch a scientist and you touch a child.
18The best scientist is open to experience and begins with romance - the idea that anything is possible.
