The EDM artist Deadmau5 recently released a song called "The Veldt" inspired by Ray Bradbury, it's a great work.

The Moby Dick writing story is told in one of the more worthy episodes of "Studio 360"

Fahrenheit 451 was the book that made me like reading books. I was in the fifth grade.

Until that time, I viewed reading as an irrelevant school chore with material about dusty times I didn’t care about.
