Dr. Jonathan R. Eller is a Chancellor’s Professor of English and director of the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies at Indiana University’s School of Liberal Arts. He first met Ray Bradbury in the late 1980s, eventually developing a friendship and working relationship that lasted until Mr. Bradbury’s passing in 2012. His most recent books include the biographical trilogy Becoming Ray Bradbury, Ray Bradbury Unbound, and the newly published Bradbury Beyond Apollo (University of Illinois Press). Since 2013 he has prefaced and prepared new historical sections for Simon & Schuster’s latest editions of Fahrenheit 451 and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Three of Professor Eller’s books on Bradbury have been LOCUS award finalists for best nonfiction title in the science fiction and fantasy field.
Professor Eller retired from twenty years as an Air Force officer in 1993; his military service included operational assignments with the Tactical Air Command and the Pacific Air Forces before duty as an English professor at both the U.S. Air Force Academy (Colorado Springs) and the U. S. Naval Academy (Annapolis).
