Author Ray Bradbury has died in Los Angeles at the age of 91.
His daughter Alexandra confirmed that her father died on Tuesday night in Southern California.
Bradbury wrote hundreds of novels, short stories, plays and television and film scripts in a career dating back to the 1940s.
His most famous novels include Fahrenheit 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes.
The writer's grandson, Danny Karapetian, said: "He influenced so many artists, writers, teachers, scientists, and it's always really touching and comforting to hear their stories.
"His legacy lives on in his monumental body of books, film, television and theatre, but more importantly, in the minds and hearts of anyone who read him, because to read him was to know him".
Bradbury was born in Illinois, and as a teenager moved with his family to Los Angeles. (BBC)
