Playboy serializes Fahrenheit 451
Hugh Hefner, the editor of Playboy, was greatly inspired by Ray Bradbury. In March, April, and May 1954, the magazine reprinted Fahrenheit 451 in 3 parts.
In 2010, Hefner publicly thanked Ray for his contributions to the magazine. Ray’s involvement included mentoring some of its early writers like Charles Beaumont. Ray’s legacy is still felt today at the magazine.
