The HBO production of Fahrenheit 451 first broadcast May 19, 2018 is an exercise in irony.
In a career studded with triumphs of literature, stage, and screen, Fahrenheit 451 is Ray Bradbury's most famous work, even above The Martian Chronicles and his screenplay adaptation for John Huston 's movie version of Moby Dick.
Fahrenheit 451, a novel first published in the year I was born, 1953, was entered into the Libertarian Futurist Society's Prometheus Hall of Fame in 1984, the same year I won the Prometheus Award for my novel, The Rainbow Cadenza.
