SFWA President Russell Davis announced on February 16 that Joss Whedon (Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse) has been named recipient of the Bradbury Award for excellence in screenwriting, reports Locus Mag. Whedon will be presented the award during the Nebula Awards Weekend in Los Angeles, California, April 24-26, 2009.

“Like everyone who picks up a pen, I was a rabid Bradbury fan and as greatly influenced by him as any other writer I read. To receive the award named for him is an honor I'd not dreamed of,” said Whedon. “In my defense, it didn't exist back then. What did exist were the very lovely, very twisted and very human stories that warped my impressionable mind, and that I have tried, in whatever medium they will let me, to measure up to.”
