The visionary writer, whose work covered a variety of genres, is best known for science-fiction novels such as The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man.

His most famous work though was Fahrenheit 451. Published in 1953, the novel depicts a dystopian future society where censorship leads to all books being burned.
