Several months ago I read that the rights to pen an official Bradbury biography had been sold (for six figures, by the way). Any word on this book?
If you are talking about the Sam Weller book... then it's Sam Weller working in conjunction with Bradbury (or is it vice-versa)...with a publication date probably around the same date as the release of Sound of Thunder movie, Spring 2004....
Click on, or type into finder the following, then scroll 3/4 way down to find info on this Bradbury Biography project...

The biography is coming together very nicely and should be out next year. There isn't an exact pub date as I'm not done with it yet!
I have lots of never-before-published photos of Ray and the Bradbury family dating all the way back to very old pictures from the late 1800s. The book will also include many, many, many never-before-told stories from the life of the greatest author on Earth and Mars! There will be as many other extra goodies included between the two covers as I can jam in there.
Real fast: I spent this last weekend with Ray and his family and friends down at the San Diego Comic Con. Ray gave a talk along with his first agent, Julie Schwartz, as well as Forrest J. Ackerman. It was, no surprise, amazing. I'm sure some others will post about this.
The new "Bradbury Stories" book is stunning. The title is embossed on the cover and the selection of 100 tales is, in my opinion, superb.
Thanks for the inquiry about the bio, by the way!
I was fortunate enough to obtain an advance reading copy of the new BRADBURY STORIES colection. Sam is probably too modest to mention it, but Ray's new collection is dedicated to three "Sam's" in his life: his grandfather, his grandson and...Sam Weller, his biographer. What a wonderful honor! Congratulations, Sam!
Thanks so much for stopping by and replying. I can't wait for the book!
