Amazing Storyteller

Illustrator Jeff Durham posted this "old illustration" of Ray Bradbury to his blog. It's a piece of artwork he did for a magazine c.2003, but which he had forgotten about. The full story is here.



Meanwhile, MGM has apparently announced an intention to film some of Bradbury's oldest stories. His 2002 novel From the Dust Returned is a composite novel, stitched together from numerous short stories about an odd fantasy family. You know them: Cecy, Uncle Einar and their relatives. The MGM announcement is all over the web. Here's one account of it. In mentioning this, I also have to issue that standard warning: just because someone says they're making a film, don't assume they will ever ACTUALLY make it. We're still waiting for Fahrenheit 451 and The Illustrated Man - other major Bradbury works which have been announced in recent years, but which are still lost somewhere in "development hell".
