Ray and Clifton's Cafeteria

For many years, Clifton's Cafeteria was the meeting place for the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society (LASFS), which back in the late 1930's counted among its many members Ray Bradbury, Forrest J Ackerman and Ray Harryhausen. The LASFS and Clifton's served as "breeding grounds" for a whole generation of professionals in the science fiction and fantasy fields. Below is a link to an article appearing on the excellent website of First Fandom Experience, publisher of the forthcoming book THE EARLIEST BRADBURY, describing Ray's experiences at Clifton's. Sadly, Clifton's Cafeteria closed its doors in or about 2018, and the venue now operates as a nightclub.

And for an article in the Los Angeles Times describing how Ray Bradbury returned to Clifton's in 2009 to celebrate his 89th birthday, you can click on the link below:
