The problem is that there is NO best side.

Somebody came into the bookshop today to say that they heard mention of the signing this morning. They just do not remember which of the many NPR stations they heard it on nor which program. I searched KPCC and KCRW to no avail.

Great videos and pictures Stefan and John! Nice to meet both of you in person there.

It was an amazing event! Overwhelming to say the least. I was very happy to finally meet a number of my heroes in person including of course Ray.

February 21, 2010: the mass signing of the anthology, THE BLEEDING EDGE, at the late and lamented Mystery and Imagination Bookshop in Glendale, California. There was an incredible gathering of wonderful writers all under one roof: Ray Bradbury, Norman Corwin, William F. Nolan, George Clayton Johnson, John Shirley, James Robert Smith, Cody Goodfellow, Lisa Morton, Earl Hamner, John Tomerlin, and Jason Brock. Writers Dennis Etchison, John Skipp and Peter Atkins were there as well. I had no intention of missing this, and flew into LA for the event and to see one of Ray's theatrical productions that same evening. What an amazing day that was! To see a video of the signing, just click on the link below. And scroll up to the top of this thread for additional videos and photos of that day.

As I think about the February, 2010 mass signing of THE BLEEDING EDGE, more memories come to mind. In addition to Ray Bradbury being there, it was my first (and it turned out, only) opportunity to meet the legendary Norman Corwin, the father of modern radio, who at the time of the signing was only a few months short of his 100th birthday. I had the chance, thank heaven, to tell Mr. Corwin how much I admired his work; how his 1945 radio broadcast ON A NOTE OF TRIUMPH (a celebration of the end of the war in Europe, which I had on an LP) had made me a fan for life and led me to his other work; and what an honor it was to meet him. Ray was sitting next to Mr. Corwin at the time, and out of the corner of my eye, I could see Ray look at me, smile, and nod his head. I will never forget Mr. Corwin's big smile after my comments, who then gave me one of the firmest handshakes I have ever received. I later reached John Tomerlin, and had him sign my copy of the 1959 Boardman hardcover edition of RUN FROM THE HUNTER, a book he had co-authored in 1957 with Charles Beaumont under the pseudonym "Keith Grantland". Mr. Tomerlin looked at the book, smiled sadly, and said, "I wish Chuck [Beaumont] was still here to sign it too." Again, great memories!
