The 91st annual Pulitzer Prizes were announced on Monday, April 16, 2007. A special citation will be presented to Ray Douglas Bradbury at the awards luncheon on May 21st at Columbia University, N.Y.C.

Bradbury will receive a special citation from the Pulitzer Board for “his distinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy.”

Although not a Pulitzer Prize, itself, the citation is a life achievement award

Bradbury, born on August 22, 1920 in Waukegan, Illinois, is well known for a diverse amount of work in American literature, horror, fantasy, science fiction, and mystery. He is probably best known for the three books: The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, and Fahrenheit 451.

He was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 1989. He was recognized as a Grand Master by Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).

Bradbury also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a asteroid named in his honor (9766 Bradbury), and a lunar crater named for his novel Dandelion Wine (Dandelion Crater).

He has been honored with the National Medal of Arts. Besides writing fiction books, Bradbury has also written non-fiction books, anthologies, fables, children’s books, poetry, short stories, plays, screenplays, and teleplays.
