Cool interview. Bradbury is one of the true living legends.

He is the writer who directly made me first want to write. I think it was in 6th or 7th grade when I first read a shorts collection...."The Emmisary"..."the Man Upstairs" and the one that did it...."Small Assasin"....from that I went and checked out "Something Wicked...." and decided I may someday wanna give this writing thing a crack.


His work is brilliant and timeless....and boundriless. sci-fi, horror...fantasy...balderdash!! It's just damn good!!

I read The Martian Chronicles (The Silver Locusts, my copy was titled) when I was a kid, and was hooked. He's an enduring influence on my daydreaming.

Anyone else remember the TV mini series based on the Martian Chronicles? I wonder if I can Netflix that one? Gotta check...

What about The Ray Bradbury Theater? Anyone know if these ever came out on DVD?

I picked up a few copies of The Ray Bradbury Theater on the cheap at a discount store a while back. Try ebay or half.com. They're out there, but the production quality isn't too great.

I guess this more properly belongs in our Intermission room, but it's Ray Bradbury related, so bite me!

I watched The Illustrated Man (Rod Stieger) a few weeks back. Not too shabby...

...And in further Ray Bradbury news. The BBC did a bunch of recent audio versions of his short stories, which are all available on iPlayer.

I've never got on with audio books or those fiction podcasts, but the guy reading these makes them sound awesome.

I came into Ray Bradbury relatively late and by pure chance. I picked up The Toynbee Convector for £1 in a charity shop, just because it was small enough to fit in my pocket at work. Now I'm hooked!

Cheers,
Rich

I think Bradbury is a true master of the short story. And stories like "The Other Foot" are so ahead of their time.
