Eloquent as usual. No wonder Ray loves him so much. This guy is doing more to carry on Ray Bradbury's legacy than just about anyone. Thank you Sam!

That might be true, but Sam is a little weird from my encounter with him and from what others have said.

Unless you count Jon Eller, Bill Touponce and Donn Albright...

Those guys are great, no doubt! Love some of those Subterrenian books!

Sam has just done a ton to bring Ray B. out to a broader audience than collectors and diehards. Ray is thrilled that he works so passionately to introduce Bradbury to non-readers and a new generation!
Check out www.listentotheecheos.com! Two weeks ago Weller was part of an awesome BBC series that reached over one million!

This Wednesday, Weller will appear on the Chicago PBS program, Chicago Tonight that will include never before seen footage of Bradbury!

Finally, Weller's third and likely last Bradbury project is going to be his biggest and best of all. Ray is very excited about it when we visited him in July. This thing is going to be huge.

Cheers!

John

It's not a competition, but in my view Profs Eller and Touponce have done a ton and a half! Their work with Subterranean and Gauntlet may have appealed to collectors and diehards, but their main purpose is to restore scholarly and critical attention to Ray - an attention easily lost over the years thanks to Ray's "celebrity" status.
