Awards Bradbury received include the Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award, an Emmy, the World Fantasy Award life achievement, is a Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master, an SF Hall of Fame Living Inductee, received the Prometheus Award, and also received a special citation from The Pulitzer Board as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In his honor have been named an asteroid, an award for science fiction, a crater on the Moon, and a park in Waukegan, Illinois, his birthplace.
Bradbury published his first story in 1938, started to write full-time in 1942 and, as he said, wrote every day from that day until his death. He should be an example for all of us young writers to work hard and persevere.
