There are many events planned. I will be using this thread to post information about them as they are firmed up.

I'll start with the first one that has the date already set. Comic-Con is planning a tribute to Ray on Thursday, July 12 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

I hope you can make it. I was not even going to go this year, too sad. But now there is no way I can stay away.

I hope I'm not hijacking the thread by posting this, but it seems an appropriate place to put it.

On Monday 18th June I am presenting a paper on Bradbury's MARTIAN CHRONICLES screenplays at the CRSF (Current Research in Speculative Fiction) conference in Liverpool, England.

And between 28th-30th June I will be attending the SFRA (Science Fiction Research Association) conference in Detroit, Michigan. I will be on a panel discussing Bradbury's work (including the CHRONICLES screenplays again), alongside Prof Jon Eller of the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies and Dr Adam Frisch, former president of SFRA.

All of the above was planned before Ray left us, but are likely to take on a different tone and significance now that he is no longer with us.

Both CRSF and SFRA conferences have admission fees, so I wouldn't expect people to turn up just for the Bradbury bits, but if anyone here happens to be going to either event, please make a point of saying hello and joining in the discussion.

I'm also working with the organisers of the SFRA conference to add a special tribute event to the SFRA programme, which is likely to consist of a screening of selected short films based on Ray's work.

Phil:

Would it be possible to see a copy of your paper on The Martian Chronicles screenplays? I suspect there's a lot on interest in this neck of the woods on the subject and your work.

Ray lives!

Many thanks,

Ken Engel

If I finish writing it... Ask me again after the events, and I'll see what I can do. Thanks for your interest!

Oh please promote any upcoming event. With Ray having left us way too soon it is nice that people know of events in other parts of the country or the world.

Further to my earlier post, I can confirm that the SFRA programme will indeed have a tribute to Ray as the last session of the conference (4pm-5pm on the Saturday). I will be presenting a compilation of clips from various documentaries about Ray and some short films.

In fact, the conference will be topped and tailed with Bradbury, as the discussion panel will be the FIRST session of the conference (on the Friday morning), and the film show will be the LAST session.

This was a celebration of life!

Augh, this video's all blurry now.

Must be from watching it through tears.

A PG-13 version is being prepared so as to receive a broader audience.

Yes, but kids should be able to hear it.

I'm sure kids know how to hear the original, uncut version. The new version will be for the parents and teachers!
