His collection of short stories, "S Is For Space" was the first book of science fiction I ever read, back in probably the third or fourth grade (it's not a children's book, despite the way the title sounds, the stories are for adults). This began my life-long interest in sci-fi, by far the genre I most favor reading.

Mr. Bradbury was kind enough to host a writer's symposium every year when I was in high school advanced english class in Los Angeles County back in the 70s, encouraging those of us who had dreams of writing to put our doubts aside and go for it. A real gentleman and a wonderful, sometimes whimsical influence on the sci-fi genre.
Farenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper burns. The ideas which are set on paper are immortal. Thanks for helping point out the difference, Mr. Bradbury.
