Miscellaneous Bradburyiana

The Lake County Sun-Times, based in Chicago, has a few items of interest to the Bradbury fan. On 18th February Ted Gioia posted this appreciation of The Illustrated Man. And on 23rd February came this scrapbookish history of Bradbury's hometown of Waukegan... and this strangely unexplained tiny article about Mr B.

Urban Archipelago's film of Ray Bradbury's Chrysalis is now out on the festival circuit. This, you may recall, is the feature film debut of the folks who brought us the short film of A Piece of Wood. The official website of Chrysalis is here, and its MySpace page carries details of forthcoming screenings. I haven't seen the film yet, and I haven't seen many reviews. One visitor to the Boston Sci-Fi Film Marathon has posted this less than positive review.
