Several of his novels and short stories have been [[TheFilmOfTheBook adapted to film]] and [[RayBradburyTheater TV series]]. Back in the 1950s, he discovered that two of his stories had been adapted by ECComics without permission. He kept his sense of humor about this, writing a note to the publisher praising the adaptations, while remarking that he had "inadvertently" not yet received the royalties. The publisher was eventually able to print several fine authorized adaptations of his work.

* DeathOfTheAuthor: Everyone knows how ''Literature/{{Fahrenheit 451}}'' is about the dangers of government censorship... except Ray Bradbury. He vehemently denies this when the subject comes up; according to him the story he wrote has nothing to do with censorship and everything to do with [[NewMediaAreEvil television rotting your brain.]]

* ShockingSwerve: Witness a master of the trope. Bradbury can effortlessly pull the rug out from under a reader with a single WhamLine. A nostalgic story about childhood will suddenly veer into CosmicHorror|Story, a high fantasy story ends in a Science Fiction reveal, a DayInTheLife story suddenly becomes a MurdererPOV story.

Ray Douglas * SurpriseCreepy: With so many of his works being lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek affairs, it's easy to forget that Bradbury (August 22, 1920-June 5, 2012) was an author of SpeculativeFiction, [[MysteryFiction Mystery]], could do dark and {{Literary Fiction}}. He was also known for his screenplays, poetry, twisted horror with equal skill. The real surprise is the ease with which he can bounce between "whimsical" and organizing large [[{{Anthology}} anthologies]] in the ScienceFiction genre. "blanket clutching terror" multiple times within a single short story.
