Interest in his work continues, and has perhaps even intensified. Coming soon are:
- the second volume of The Collected Stories of Ray Bradbury: A Critical Edition, 1943-1944;
- the second volume of Jon Eller's literary biography Ray Bradbury Unbound; and
- the fourth issue of The New Ray Bradbury Review.
Meanwhile, in Hollywood, Disney is planning its second attempt to film Something Wicked This Way Comes with Seth Grahame-Smith as writer-director. And in just over a week, BBC Radio 4 will be topping and tailing its season of SF dramas with two new productions based on The Illustrated Man and The Martian Chronicles.
In the last year we have seen academic texts about Bradbury's works:
- About the Arizona and Mars connections - Orbiting Ray Bradbury's Mars;
- About one of his most enduring novels - Critical Insights: Fahrenheit 451.
Finally, we have seen Bradbury's office contents shipped to the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies for preservation future study, and the sale of the Bradbury house on Los Angeles' Cheviot Drive.
A time of change, to be sure.
