Fahrenheit 451, Gorman, Morton

Tim Hamilton's graphic adaptation of Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 has been shortlisted for a 2010 Eisner Award in the category of best adpatation.

The blog Thought on Speculative Fiction has a short but interesting essay on the implied politics of Fahrenheit 451, relating it to the McCarthy period.

On his blog, novelist Ed Gorman has posted his review of the new Everyman edition of The Stories of Ray Bradbury. Although Gorman remains dubious about Bradbury's middle-period short fiction, he is in no doubts about Bradbury's later mystery novels, Death is a Lonely Business and A Graveyard for Lunatics.

Meanwhile, Bram Stoker-winning author Lisa Morton has blogged her reminiscences of a day she spent on the set of Something Wicked This Way Comes. She has recollections of Jonathan Pryce and Pam Grier (Mr Dark and the Dust Witch respectively), and some unique photos.
